Hi -

I'm visiting my friend (an American who is studying abroad for a semester) in Vienna at the end of November.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend cool places to go while I'm there. Of course I'm interested in museums and such, but that info is easy for me to get. I'm more interested in finding out about things off the beaten path that aren't in travel guides.

Any tips would be helpful!

I live in Vienna; what kind of things are you interested in? There's lots to see and do - if you can give me some idea of what you have in mind I'll do the best I can to come up with some ideas  Smiley

Hey! I was looking to start this exact topic! I'll be in Vienna for Christmas.

I'm wondering if there are any fabric or yarn stores, or crafty events that I simply must not miss?? And will anything be open? I'll be there from Christmas Eve day thru New Years...

I'm hoping to make an extended trip to Vienna within the next year, and am looking for all kinds of information, from craft-related things to schools to culture... anything! Even tips from previous visitors would be great!

hello! although your posts are old, I think I could help here a little... There is a flea-market at Naschmarkt (Kettenbrückengasse-Linke Wienzeile in the 4th district) every Saturday from 6.30 a.m. till 4.p.m.
I really love the "Museumsquartier" http://www.mqw.at/ - there are museums (as the name says...  Wink ) and shops and cafés... In the narrow streets near Museumsquartier in the 7th district there are a lot of small designershops (Siebensterngasse to Neubaugasse)...
If you are coming now for Christmas, there are many, many Christmas-markets, I especially like Spittelbergmarkt http://www.spittelberg.at/index.php?en_weihnachtsmarkt , and also at Schloss Schönbrunn...

hi! i've got a few tips for craft shops and places that are not that central. but vienna is a small city, so everything is easy to reach.

there's a huge fabric/ribbon/buttons … stuff store called "müller"
i love spending whole afternoons there.
http://www.textil-mueller.at/filialen.php they don't have a english homepage, but that's the contact information. it's a little outside vienna, but it's just a few minutes via train and absolutely worth a visit

it's a little strange when you're there for the first time, as it is basically a huge storehouse, like a giant flea market or something. while it looks a bit ugly in the beginning, there's a lot of nice stuff to find, and the people are great.

they have a huge room full of buttons and a room full of ribbon, and the area with the shelves full of buttons is bigger than my kitchen.
it's super cheap, they have super heavy, beautiful upholstery fabric for 10€ a metre, i think that's the most expensive. i bought nice embroidered and otherwise embellished taffeta for 7€ a metre, the same fabric was 18€ in another fabric store.

and another great store is "boesner". it's located in the 11th district, U3 station "simmering"
they carry all kinds of paper and paint. i especally like the book binding section. they have stuff for pottery, painting, book binding and most crafts that are not fabric related.
the most people who shop there are artists (photographers, painters, designers …)

if you like "heurigen" (a kind of restaurant), you can find them in grinzing, a part of the 19th district where the vineyards start http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grinzing#Topography
there's a place in wienerwald where you can oversee vienna called "am cobenzl"

and i second schloss schönbrunn.
