Vienna shopping
Im going to Vienna next weekend... I've been there many times. I know they have Lv, Chanel, Gucci...etc...but Im kinda sick of those and plus I don't really buy much there so I was wondering if there are any cool vintage shops or shops where I can basically find great stuff that are not that expensive.

would be very glad if you could help.

well my reply is too late for you, but maybe for next time... There is a secondhand designer store called Bocca Lupo (always has at least some Vuitton Pieces. then Chanel, Hermes... lots of shoes and clothing, accessories...), located more or less near the Stephansdom, and there's also a store carrying (new) Balenciaga and other Designers http://www.song.at/women.htm

If you need more precise adresses, locations of certain stores/brands... just write it down here or PM me.

Yeah, if you tell me about the price range I could help you more, but here are a few stores in the meantime.

A good place to shop is Stephansplatz/Kohlmarkt. If you go into the sidestreets there are quite a few stores that sell designer clothes.

aris: I am thinking of getting a bag and maybe some jewellery. Price range is kinda hard to gauge, it depends on what it is. I am more interested in shopping areas as I only have about 5 hours to wander round Vienna. I am thinking of taking in some of the sights too.

elfenkind: Thank you, these are great.

only 5 hours, alright: high end: Kohlmarkt, Graben, Kärntnerstraße (respectively) the first two have all the designer stores while Kärntnerstraße also has high street like H&M, High Street: Mariahilferstraße

for less known non mainstream stuff you gotta check out those side streets in the 1rst district

If anyone is interested I found a store that sells Repetto and they have quite a great collection and also know of a boutique that sells (Etoile by) Isabel Marant, (Athe by) Vanessa Bruno, Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and Tara Jarmon. Since these brands seem to be quite rare in Vienna I thought I would mention it in this post, so if anyone is interested just PM and I will be happy to tell you where it is and how to get there. Both stores have excellent SA who are really extremly nice and helpful.

Also if anyone is interested in buying international, also German and Austrian, magazines try Morawa in Wollzeile 11, they have a great selection. If anyone needs directions don't hesitate to ask, it is really easy to find.

Are there any good flea markets in Vienna? Or thrift stores?..

I'd also appreciate tips about 'classic' cafés, preferably not too touristy ones?

I'm going to Vienna for the first time next month, and I'm really excited. It seems like a lovely city.

For a classic cafe you should visit the "Kleines Café" ("small cafe") on the
Franziskanerplatz 3 in the first district. I took a picture of it once, which you can find here, in case you're interested.

When you're already in the Franziskanerviertel you should also visit "Die vermischte Warenhandlung" which is in the Weihburggasse 16. It's in the same "quarter" as the café. To get to "Die vermischte Warenhandlung" you have to pass a bookshop called "Antiquariat - Bücher - Kuriositäten", after that bookshop you walk left immediately straight into a backyard, which is where you should find the shop. It doesn't really have anything to do with fashion but it's a lovely little shop. You should visit this page, even though it's in German: http://www.gsund.net/cms/beitrag/10050073/1482600/

For secondhand stores you can visit the Etcetera in the Neubaugasse 77, in the 7th district. You could also visit the Nobel-Second-Hand Boutique in the Krugerstraße 10 in the first district.

Then there's also the Mocca Club, where they have teas from all over the world if you are interested in that kind of stuff: http://www.espressobar.at/hauser/mocca.htm
It's in the Linke Wienzeile in the 4th district. Although it's not really a classic café, but it's in the same street as the Secession should you go there.

And every saturday in that same area there's a flea market. It starts at 6.30 and ends at 16.00. You'll find the flea market right after the Naschmarkt towards the Kettenbrückengasse.

On another note: You should visit the MuseumsQuartier, there are two huge museums and lot's of other tiny shops there.


Hope I could help. If you need anything else don't hesitate to ask.

Oh, and I forgot to mention "Bocca Lupa" is another vintage designer shop. It's in the Landskrongasse 1-3 in the first district.
