Concierge.com's insider take:

At Augarten, a porcelain manufacturer since 1718, every step of production—from mixing the paste to painting the intricate trim—is done by hand, exquisitely. The factory and shop are out of the way in the second district, but it's worth the trip for the delicate and graceful shape and pure lines of the finished product. Plus, you can watch the master craftsmen at work. While you're out there, stop by the former hunting lodge of Emperor Franz Joseph, surrounded by the beautiful Augarten Park, and the Augarten Palace, now home to the Vienna Boys' Choir. Following a major renovation in 2011, one wing of the gleaming palace now houses the Augarten Porcelain Museum. The showcase for Austria's signature porcelain features examples from each of the manufacturer's artistic phases, including flamboyant Art Deco designs and covetable pastel-painted figurines.—Update by Raphael Kadushin

Open Mondays through Fridays from 9:30 am to 5 pm.
