Vienna Media News 09/2019 Away from the first district: Kettenbrückengasse

Naschmarkt is a popular destination for many visitors to Vienna. It is definitely worth taking an extended stroll along the popular market, and continuing past the impressive Austrian art nouveau apartment buildings built by Otto Wagner on the Wienzeile. Anyone who turns off at the Kettenbrückengasse subway station on to the street of the same name will find an impressive variety of shops, bars and restaurants. Kettenbrückengasse actually takes in two of Vienna’s districts, with the border between the fourth and fifth districts running down the middle of the road. A number of eye-catching buildings from the late nineteenth century Biedermeier period remain on this street, which connects Naschmarkt and Margaretenstrasse.

Anna Stein Salon has all kinds of original items on sale, from jewellery and books to attractive knick-knacks. La Schachtula sells pretty gift ideas and handcrafted wares. The lovingly curated range at stattGarten Eigenbedarf covers everything from handmade brooms to luxury gourmet spaghetti. Two buildings farther on, stattGarten Shop has everything from household goods to hair products, scents from all over the world and beauty treatments. Vintage store Bananas has carved out a niche for itself with an original selection of furnishings from the 1930s to the 1980s. Beautiful clothing featuring pared down lines is the order of the day at the Ready-Made by Salner fashion workshop and Susa Kreuzberger’s showroom.

Kettenbrückengasse also has a lot to offer when it comes to food and drink. Eduard A. Fruth has set up shop just around the corner from Naschmarkt. Dedicated to his craft, this chocolatier and pâtissier conjures up a delicious range of petit fours, truffles, confectionery, macaroons and cakes and pastries. At the LGV Gärtnergschäftl an association of 110 Viennese family-run producers offer their fruits and vegetables. The Bauernladen Helene farm shop also offers fresh and healthy produce, from cucumbers to lettuce. Local produce is also the watchword at Henzls Ernte, where delicacies from the region’s fields, forests and kitchen gardens can be found alongside wild herbs which they forage themselves as well as unusual products such as orange peel powder and yarrow syrup. Käseschatztruhe sells cheese from small-scale producers in Austria, Switzerland and France alongside selected oils, wines, preserves and spices.

There are plenty of places to eat and drink along Kettenbrückengasse thanks to three Chinese restaurants, a pub and two pizzerias. At the top of the street, where at number 1 Pizza Randale serves its distinctive pizza creations, is Margaretenstrasse, where there is even more to discover, such as the feinedinge* porcelain workshop and cool designer fashion courtesy of Samstag-Shop, Elfenkleid and Unikatessen.
