Perhaps that is why this narrow enclave in the old city centre of Vienna has become a favorite for museums, artists seeking inspiration and serious collectors. Meanwhile, the store’s owner and writer of natural history… More info

  • Bel etage Vienna (Home & Design, Design)
  • For over 30 years, Vienna-native Wolfgang Bauer's life has revolved around beautiful, Jugendstil antiques.

  • Lobmeyr Vienna (Home & Design, Design)
  • It's easy to mistake Lobmeyr for an art history museum. Maybe it's the awe-inspiring 19th century interior which spans two floors. Maybe it's the fact that the third floor actually is a museum, exhibiting some of the highlights from the store's rich history. Either way, this place is a treasure for shoppers and historians alike. Established in 1823 by Josef Lobmeyr, the eponymous company quickly become known as Vienna's leading glass… More info

The name of the shop translates to "the work bench," reflecting its former life as the carpentry workshop of Katharina's father. And while the smell of… More info
