Grab a taxi and wander over to buy a snowglobe. Located in a neighborhood setting, it is more of a mom-and-pop type of business rather than a "factory". It was clean and welcoming with a cozy showroom. The people were so pleasant. This was a...More

This is hard to find but it’s very cute. The museum wasn’t open when we went, as it was Christmas, but the shop was quite amazing, and the lady was polite and friendly. Would recommend, although maybe not for small children as the snow globes...More

This is tucked away in a very anonymous-looking suburb at the end of the 42 tram route. Don't expect to see gnarled craftsmen at work, although the factory is close by and packing/office work is visible. There are a few tools of the trade and...More

The 18th district is the most inconspicuous of the
listed neighbourhoods. Where else can you still watch
card players at a Viennese coffeehouse, or listen to
