Local Heroes: Alexandra Leitner / QWSTION invites Vienna

The Altstadt Vienna lies in the middle of the trendy 7th district. Or as others call it: Boboville. Our portraits "local heroes" provide you with an insight of the real Vienna. Experienced by real Viennese. Our neighbours.



The qwstion store manager about spelt hearts and sandy beaches


What do you like about the area? Why are you in the 7th district?
I’m not sure if it’s about the cool, little shops, the good food or the kind people but the 7th is definitely the district in Vienna that I feel most comfortable in. It inspires me on a daily basis and I enjoy to work and live here!

What can one buy in your store? What is your passion behind it?

«QWSTION invites» is the name and concept of our stores. We have invited other brands that share our passion for quality, timeless design and responsible production to create an inspiring space for all kinds of modern every day products.

What makes the store so unique is the harmonic blending of bags, design objects, fashion and interior that instantly makes you feel comfortable. The integrated Wolfgang Coffee ads to that special atmosphere and invites to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee!

Word Rap about Vienna    

Only in Vienna:
Weißer Spritzer  (white wine with sparkling water)

Better somewhere else

Le Labo.

Sweet Vienna:
At Naturkost St.Josef they have a vegan speltheart filled with raspberry jam and dipped in dark chocolate – that is REALLY delicious! I think it is made by Waldherr bakery.


Hearty Vienna: 
The tavern „zur Stadt Krems“ is definitely our favourite when our colleagues from Switzerland are in Vienna and crave for a Schnitzel.


When it get's dark:
It depends a little bit on the outside temperature but we like it best to sit in front of the store and enjoy a cold beer or have a cocktail at our neighbours’ bar Parfümerie.

Not in any tourist guide: 
I love the possibility to easily leave town on a bike and thus explore e.g. beautiful sandy beaches at the Danube near Klosterneuburg.

Your most favorite place:
The Old Danube in summer.   

Courtyards – my favourite is the one of Hotel am Brillantengrund

You can skip, although in the guide? 
I wouldn’t totally skip the first district but you can keep a visit there short and instead enjoy all the other peaceful corners of Vienna!

What do you love about the city?
The cosiness.
