Vienna’s Best Boutiques

They go unnoticed by many and are treasured by a chosen few. Vienna’s best boutiques are on the rise and we chose a select sample to get you through May.


The frame designs for this eyewear brand come straight from Switzerland. Their classic collection is assembled in the Italian Dolomites and the titanium frames are manufactured in Japan. But this international ultra-modern brand is a family-run business and every piece is hand crafted. Since 2016 Saskia Diez, the jewelry designer, has been collaborating with the brand and designs their limited edition collections and numbered series pieces. Just recently Vienna gained a new gorgeous store in the 7th district and our Grazer friends are going to be happy when their new store opens on May 5. Sometimes all you need is a new perspective.

7., Neubaugasse 36

(also Sporgasse 2, 8010 Graz)


Antica Murrina

The tiny village of Murano, Italy has been famous for its delicate glassware and jewelry for hundreds of years. Now, thanks to Azar Salek, we have the chance to acquire some of the pieces in her shop, right here in Vienna’s 1st district.  From simple, clear necklaces to multicolored rings and earrings, there are plenty of options. This summer, the collections range from turquoise and coral beads to silver
and gold leaves.

Viktor Steinwender

Viktor Steinwender presents his style and expertise in interior design in this beautiful establishment, with a vast selection of home products. One of the highlights is the impressive collection of designer wallpaper from designers like Matthew Williamson, Cole & Son, Missoni and Hermés. But it’s not all fabrics and wall decor. Steinwender offers an exquisite selection of handpicked furniture and interior products. Whatever you are looking for, from Italian design to romantic country style, you’ll find it here in the heart of Vienna.
