"Die werkbank is a small, quaint shop with a big bold concept: handmade.
That’s right, everything inside is handcrafted.
The owner, Katharina, describes it as a little bird amongst the giant global brands or, in other words, as a space for young artisan designers to exhibit and sell their work. The name of the shop translates to "the work bench, " reflecting its former life as the carpentry workshop of Katharina's father. And while the smell of sawdust has left it, die werkbank still reeks of creativity.
Each piece is unique and made of the utmost quality, from contemporary furniture designer Pinestone’s rocking chair to literature-inspired jewelery, upcycled bike wheels reimagined as lamps, old records turned toilet roll holders, anti-establishment tank tops and the beautifully imperfect ceramic designs by local artisan Anna Holly.
Stock changes regularly but always remains eclectic. Hidden away on a quiet street behind the museum, die werkbank is type of shop well worth looking for."

I’ve been meaning to tell you for a long time now how great business has been thanks to your city guide.
So many more tourists than before come by just to have a look at the shop or because they want an umbrella or a pair of gloves to take back with them from Vienna. Today a woman was having trouble making up her mind, and while she was deciding, her husband found three pairs of Burlington socks to buy.
When I asked her if she might like a copy of the Vienna city guide, she smiled , saying: ‘We already have one. That’s how we found your shop!’ ;))
I really regret having missed out on being part of the 18/19 edition [of GUIDED]. So as soon as it’s possible to come on board again with you, PLEASE, PLEASE call me!!! Kind regards from Neubaugasse.
