Song

Vienna, Austria

An irresistible shop on the ever-evolving Praterstrasse. In a room of scrubbed walls and fresh flowers you can find radical fashion, accessories, homeware and skincare from European and international brands, as well as Song’s own label. Keep an eye out for their in-house art and furniture exhibitions for something that definitely won’t fit into your hand luggage.

Muehlbauer

Vienna, Austria

You may notice that the Viennese are a particularly debonair bunch. From leather to fine furs, this is a city of artisans. One such artist was Julianna Mühlbauer, a millionairess who began making hats back in 1903. Her now iconic company makes turbans, trilbies and top hats for some of the world’s biggest stars.

Lederleitner Home Store

Vienna, Austria

Lederleitner Home Store is such a nice shop that, even if you’ve adamantly promised not to buy any more this month, it’s worth taking a look. The beautiful selection of furniture, art-deco items and take-home trinkets are perfectly staged, providing us with great inspiration (and a growing want to buy everything in sight).

shopping

PARK

Vienna, Austria

This popular concept store opened by Markus Strasser and Helmut Ruthner presents a well-edited selection of clothing by both local and internationally recognised designers. Park’s sales offer some great bargains, so if your dates happen to overlap you may need to check in an extra suitcase.

Naschmarkt Flea Market

A Viennese institution, every Saturday from 6.30AM to 2PM you’ll find seasoned pros selling hard-to-find historical artefacts, as well as independent sellers with more ramshackle offerings. While the market at Naschmarkt is a real hodgepodge of contemporary and historical, antique purists looking for a more refined edit of old gems should check out The Time Travel Antiques Market held every second and fourth Sunday of the month at Ringstrassen Galerien.
