Vienna

Vienna is the capital of the republic of Austria and has a population of just under two million people. Its rich history is reflected in the cities stunning architecture and a wealth of world class museums and stylish shops.  Presenter Estelle Bingham discovers how easy it is to get around on foot.

She discovers Royal retailers namely Kochert, who was appointed the personal jeweller to the Austrian Emperor in 1849. Here she tries on a diamond tiara, dog chain and a broach with a great story. Imperial Cobbler Ludwig Reiter is also on Estelle’s shopping list as is the must have Austrian costume, the tracht. For tourist souvenirs Estelle finds out Mozart has his name on everything from chocolates to baseball caps.

Vienna has a strong artistic tradition and the last century saw an emergence of Art Nouveau and modernism and today. Estelle visits the cities largest auction house the Dorotheum for some modern art. Not yet satisfied, she treks around the Saturday flea-market in search for some more art nouveau decorative items. Finally she tracks down the famous and much wanted Lomo camera.
