Fodor's Expert Review Lobmeyr
Nearly 200 year s old, this shop is world renowned for its exquisite glassware. One of its collections is housed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MOMA) in New York and its chandeliers have graced opera houses (including New York's Metropolitan Opera) and private homes for centuries. This is one of the only stores left in Vienna that retains its interior of imperial glory, yet allows the cutting edge of design to enter its realm. (See the breathtakingly beautiful black rococo mirrors by Austrian designer Florian Ladstätter). Even if you're not buying, head upstairs to the second-floor glass museum.
