Manu factum est (hand made) has been the watchword at this Vienna factory since 1718. Artists from the Baroque to today are behind the masterpieces of Augarten porcelain. This world-famous brand stands for delicate and graceful shapes, clean lines and exquisite details.

Combining sophisticated craftsmanship, artistic design and the latest techniques, Augarten uniquely blends time-honored tradition with contemporary art. The finest porcelain is still produced and painted by hand in the manufactory at Augarten Palace.

As one of the oldest European names in porcelain, Augarten Wien has symbolized the continuity of timeless Viennese tradition, art and culture for almost 300 years now. Take a guided tour of the Augarten Palace’s manufactory, take a behind the scenes look, and don’t forget to visit the porcelain museum. A new café-restaurant in Vienna’s oldest Baroque gardens is the perfect place to fuel up for the next city exploration.
