Description:

Wiener Porzellanmanufaktur Augarten, the second oldest porcelain...

Wiener Porzellanmanufaktur Augarten, the second oldest porcelain manufactory in Europe, was founded in 1718. The “white gold” from Vienna has been lovingly moulded and shaped, glazed and painted by hand ever since; every single item of finest Augarten porcelain is just unique now as it was then. Design and artistic value reflect collaboration with generations of well-known artists. Augarten upholds this tradition, working closely with some of the most respected designers of our day.

The factory is open Monday to Thursday. The time it is opened is varied so must check before you go. We missed the tour of the working factory. We did see their small collection of lovely artistic pieces from this factory. One can also buy porcelain pieces if you have the means.The Hop on Hop off bus ticket included free... More

Either with or without the factory tour, the museum is worth a visit. Everything well-described, German/English, opened new in 2010. History of porcelain, old and new creations.

I'm interested in ceramics, so a walk across Augarten to the Royal Porcelain Manufactory was worthwhile. The gallery has an entry fee, so only bother if this is an area of interest for you. The displays themselves are nicely laid out; principally narrated in German, there was more than enough English signage to appreciate the exhibits. Both the process and... More

BUT please it is not possible to combine German and English speakers in the same visit, first she explained in German, then English...when she finished there was no time to see around, we had to move on...It is toooooo short one hour visit, at least 2...

The Augarten porcelain manufacturers are the second oldest in Europe, after Meissen of Dresden in Germany. The museum in the Augarten is quite small. On the ground floor there is always a special exhibition, this time about animals. The first floor holds the permanent exhibition. You can book a guided tour to the factory, but beware only from Monday to... More

The tour treats English speakers a little like second-class citizens in the sense that you are told to listen to the recorded English audio commentary while the live guide gives extensive commentary in German. We got the feeling we got less information than the german speakers as a result. However, as the tour progressed, the guide loosened up a bit... More

Visited recently. Quite easy to get to using the UBann Green line and tram. Tour is in German and if you speak English you get an audio guide with the basic information. However, we were shown around the factory. Porcelain was really expensive probably because each piece has to be hand painted individually. A lot of work goes into making... More

I was not able to go on a tour of the factory, but I have enjoyed the small museum of porcelain and the exhibition about the Congress of Vienna. The museum staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant, however, was a disappointment. After sitting there for over 15 minutes without so much as a 'Hello' (not to mention ordering... More

My mother, in the Viennese tradition, received a full service of Augarten porcelain for her wedding. We, too, were presented small pieces for our wedding from our Austrian relatives. I have always loved the service, but was somewhat stymied by the extraordinary pricing. Until I went on the tour. There are 30 staff creating these beautiful pieces. 15 for the... More

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
