You gotta love a local market. Man I still miss this neighbourhood in the 3rd.
Margarethen is one of my favourite districts in Vienna, there is so much cool stuff to find there, including shops, cinema (Filmkasino), workshops, various funky places that you don’t even know what are, and cafes. I really like walking the streets there.
This lamp shop is far down towards the end of Margarethenstrasse, and probably right on the border with the 4th and 1st. I really liked the extremely long word in the window. German language…
We’re staying here for Christmas this year, and I want to have a nice tree (of the kind that has pine needles, and not my birch fig as in the past). But, I don’t have much in the way of tree decorations, so today I went to Caritas on Mittersteig to check out what they had. They have a lot!! And pretty affordable too. The selection you see above is what I ended up bringing home with me, admittedly some of them came in bundle bags where I wasn’t all that sure what was inside, but I’m pretty happy with it. The above haul cost 13 Euro altogether. AND, as a bonus I’m also supporting Caritas by shopping there. I save money, I give to charity, everyone is happy. 😛 (Except my partner who is worried that I’m going to over decorate the flat). Five weeks to go people!! Are you ready yet? 😉
There is a new sort of container city/mall that’s popped up next to the WU campus at Krieau, called Boxircus. It looks pretty cool, with some designer outlets, and a bit of a pop up market feel to it. All the shops are in containers, except for these huge lavos.
You can sit outside and have a hot drink in the section of outdoor furniture made from recycled pallets.
This is my kind of place 🙂
This is the Mekka for foodies. I went there because I wanted to get some good IPA, and boy I found a good selection! They’ve got quite a good import selection, as well as stuff from other Austrian regions.
I was laughing at myself taking these photos, as all the tourists were looking at the Ankeruhr that’s right next to it. They were looking at me with a confused frown. 🙂
