Vienna souvenirs without the kitsch

The Viennastore in the 1st district focuses on high-quality design and sells souvenirs with no reference at all to snow globes, Sisi and Mozart. Most products come from Vienna, although selected design classics from elsewhere in Austria and the rest of the world can also be purchased. On the shelves are glasses by Lobmeyr as well as the striped mokka cups of the melon service by Augarten Porzellan (to a design by Josef Hoffmann). The pretty wine glasses of the label The Golden Heart of Vienna are represented, as are Riess enamel goods (e.g. a ring cake form).

Piatnik playing cards, a Viennese memory game, cookie cutters with a giant Ferris wheel motif and Vienna clocks in a can are also on the program. Also worth noting: the exquisite Wien Gin as well as decorative postcards depicting the Wiener Werkstätte and historic photos of the city. There are also fun hand-made products such as the three breading plates for Wiener Schnitzel (labeled for flour, eggs and crumbs). As the shopkeepers also own a publishing company, the store in Vienna also has any number of books on Vienna published by Metroverlag.

Inspiration Viennese Modernism

Hamtil & Söhne is another shop that can be found in the Loos House at the corner of Michaelerplatz. This one focuses on Viennese Modernism. The selection includes high-quality home accessories, jewelry, watches and handbags.
