Glasfabrik – Antiques for you(r home)

This is a place where you either spend a lot of €uros (in any case: haggle!) or probably not a single cent. However, I do think it’s miraculous to just go there for a touch of the past. One doesn’t refuse to go to a museum because they can’t buy & take home the art that is exposed there, right? Every time I’m bringing friends, they love it at Glasfabrik. It is rather special.

While when you go to Schönbrunn Palace or the Belvedere where you must not sit on any of the furniture from the Baroque or Romanticism era & want to feel like an emperor/empress for a bit, here you can!

And what I like best about this free ‘museum’ of antiques and oddities from 1670 to 1970 is that it is constantly changing its objects without changing the topic. In addition, you can take your stuff there if you want it to be restored or evaluated by a professional.

For shoestring budgets find the ARGE flea market just next door, Lorenz-Mandl-Gasse 31-35, which is open Monday – Friday (closed on public holidays!) 08:00 – 17:00. There you’ll find kitchenware or furniture and on Wednesday & Friday also clothing, CDs, etc.
