Snow globes: Souvenir from Vienna

If you're looking for an original and tradition souvenir from Vienna, then ask for the original Viennese snow globes made by Perzy. These glass globes, with their lovingly created winter landscapes, have enchanted people for over 100 years. The largest selection can be seen (and bought) in the manufacturer's snow globe museum, while selected pieces can be found in many souvenir shops and on Vienna's Christmas Market at City Hall during Advent.

Also available in the online shop

The Viennese snow globe factory resides in one of the old suburban houses in Hernals, one of the city's outer districts. Around 200,000 pieces are produced here every year and supplied to customers around the world. Company owner Erwin Perzy III constantly comes up with new motifs and is a passionate inventor - like his grandfather, who invented the snow globe. The recipe for the artificial snow is naturally a well-kept family secret.

Pretty much any figure the customer wants can be built into the snow globe. Apart from special orders, there are numerous standard models: typically Viennese are the Giant Ferris Wheel, St. Stephen's Cathedral and City Hall.
