Local Heroes: Beate and Stephan Klein / Herr&Frau Klein

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 saviours of kids rooms about lively sidewalks and "gemischter Satz"

 

What do you like about this area? Why are you in the 7th district? 

The seventh district is our chosen „village“ within the city, the most dynamic district of Vienna. It houses a rare mixture of a strong tradition of family businesses next to a unique culture of design, shop and restaurants. You’ll find small alleys, beautiful Wilhelminian style houses, lively streets and from May to September pavement cafes take up the parking slots.   

 

Which products are you selling? What is the passion behind it?

Herr&Frau Klein offer 600m2 filled with everything you need when you have kids, but „nice“. That means: strong contemporary design, a stated clean origin and really good quality. Starting from organic bodies, dolls to loft beds: our range of products is hand picked, the customer service professional and impartial – this is the reason we have the nicest clients in Vienna ;-)

Word Rap about Vienna    

 

Only in Vienna

The „Gemischter Satz“. A wine made of different sorts of grapes that grow at the same place, are harvested and pressed all at once with a special attention by the wine-growers. Actually you could say it is THE essence of the city.

 

Better somewhere else: 

As a former citizen of Barcelona I would say there are too little balconies and much too little beach.

 

Sweet Vienna: 

Tarte au Citron from our neighbours, the french pastry shop Tart’aTata. It’s a little piece of Paris in Vienna, with all its wonderful tarts, that are almost too pretty to be eaten.

Hearty Vienna:  

The „Woracziczky“ in the fifth district: fine Viennese kitchen, traditional atmosphere and really really nice hosts! During asparagus season a must – just like in autumn for Martini duck.

 

When it gets dark...

...the sidewalks are still crowded. That’s also a reason why we love the seventh district.

 

Not in any tourist guide:  

J. Hornigs coffee bar: they just opened up on Siebensternplatz.

 

Your favorite place:

Enjoying an after work drink at Figar, before the crowd rushes in. 

 

A must-see?

To be honest: our sweet little coffee corner on the first floor.

You can skip although in the guide book:

A tour with the fiaker (horse carriage). Rather take a bike and stop at places you like.

 

What do you love about the city?

Every district is authentic. That means there is no touristy food-concourse with intrusive waiters, no areas with just offices and shops that are vacant after 7pm. In every quarter you will find people who work and live there with different backrounds. Either they have always been living there or moved in from the countryside. Every neighbourhood has ist very own charm. But still, I would only want to live in the seventh.
