Welcome to the blog of - Your specialist for Vienna.

Welcome to the blog of - Your specialist for Vienna. Do you want to get to know the real Vienna and its people, apart from the guidebooks, then you are in the right place here. Look forward to fascinating insights into Vienna, its people, art & culture and what it is that makes life worth living here.

Zweitkleid7 - the somewhat different second hand shop I know now for some time and you will find here really a small shopping paradise which clearly stands out from other second hand shops.

You will find high quality, barely worn clothes, accessories and much more here. Martina the owner welcomes you in the "living room", that’s how I call the sales room, as it is so cozy that you feel like in a living room. And from her you also get the best advices.

But now she tells you more about her small but fine shop in the 7th district.

Vienna is a city with an infinite number of facets. Many of them you can see immediately as soon as you arrive in Vienna, some things you have to discover and some things are often (almost) unseen.

One of these shadows is the homelessness and this is what the Shades Tours look closer at. I recently met Perrine Schober, the initiator and leader of this unique initiative, and asked her to tell you more about Shades Tours.

I find it really charming, that thanks to dear Stephanie Rank I become at the tender age of 48 now also a "blogger". And I am really looking forward to it!
