6. öbv Handelsges M.b.h.

"A lovely little bookstore with a wide selection of books. There was a nice older lady working who was able to help us when I asked her for something to write with. She also had the best book recommendation for learning German. Sadly, I could not get it for the cost as I am on a budget, but I do plan on swinging back if I have enough by the end of the month. Ended up just buying some beautful markers and a manga to practice my German reading with."

All that just around the corner from the city's main synagogue and the Simon Wiesenthal Center! The owner is a lovely lady, Dorothee Singer, who seemingly chooses her friendly staff well. The bookshop, the café and the art gallery have a lot to offer and are worth a detour!"
