Freytag & Berndt: "Travel Enthusiasts Heaven:" Vienna Shopping Tip by Ekaterinburg
Vienna Shopping: 208 reviews and 324 photos
This shop is on Kohlmarkt, one of the nicest pedestrianised shopping streets in the city. It is just across the street from Demel and the perfect place to go after some hot chocolate and strudel. Berndt and Freytag are famous map-makers and this shop caters exclusively for travellers. You can buy maps, travel guides, beautifully illustrated glossy coffeetable-type books, language courses and maps and speciality guides of all sorts.
What to buy: Most people already have their travel guides so what I would buy here is one of their lovely photographic books on some part of Austria. There were several on the Wachau area we had driven through on the way to Melk.
What to pay: A lot or a little. The books aren't any more expensibve than in the other bookshops.
Address: Kohlmarkt 9
Directions: Heading towards Graben from Michaelerplatz, across the street from Demel Cafe.
