  • Shakespeare & company Vienna
  • It's no secret that websites like amazon and Google Books are making life increasingly difficult for traditional neighborhood bookstores. Obviously, we're not internet-phobes, but we insist that a visit to Shakespeare and Co. remains the best way to procure English-language books in Vienna. Opening in 1981 in the vicinity of the Hoher Markt, Shakespeare and Co. was originally run by Mrs. Zobel, before being taken over by Mr. Perlaki, who… More info

  • Satyr - filmwelt Vienna
  • In the heart of Vienna lies Satyr-Filmwelt, a place where the focus is on all things cinema. The street-level entrance leads you into a modest reception area, but this is only the tip of the iceberg; the real goodies are in the basement. It is only as you descend the stairs that you come to realize the actual size of the store–that the foyer was merely a front for an enormous subterranean cineaste's paradise. If you are looking for movies, rare… More info
