Glasfabrik NEU

Glasfabrik NEU is a 2,000 m² treasure trove for seasoned antique dealers and flea market enthusiasts, covering a spectrum of antiques in a broad range of prices

Once hosted in an inconspicuous building which long ago served as Vienna’s glass factory, Die Glasfabrik relocated in November 2018 in ÖBB’s former printing factory right behind Wien Westbahnhof railway station. However Die Glasfabrik, which was also renamed Glasfabrik NEU in the process, still remains the treasure trove for seasoned antique dealers and flea market enthusiasts it has always been known for.

The brainchild of Christoph & Marcus Matschnig and Simon Weber-Unger, Glasfabrik NEU is comprised of three floors covering 2,000 m², and operates as an antiques collective covering a spectrum of antiques in a broad range of prices. In fact, the motto of Glasfabrik NEU sums it all: “a little of everything from 1670 to 1970″

Almost every day, the selection of merchandises is renewed:  Rare dishes, pictures, mirrors, glass vitrines, wardrobes, lamps, silverware, old advertising boards, antique oil paintings, hunting trophies, chandeliers galore, ceramics, figurines, vanities, chests, apothecary jars in any size imaginable, as well as all sorts of curiosities guarantee that few visitors leave the premises empty handed.

Whether vintage, shabby chic or Biedermeier, Glasfabrik NEU offers an eclectic mixture of goods of all eras and styles, from cult items and living things, to design objects and mid century modern furniture. Prices are rather reasonable, and professional advice is free. It is generally advised to bring enough cash, as credit cards are not accepted – plenty of ATMs are available inside the train station right at the corner. 

Last but not least, the immediate proximity of Glasfabrik NEU to Westbahnhof train station makes it the perfect place for a last minute shopping trip for international travelers, as it is located less than 100 meters away from the Vienna Airport Lines bus stop.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
