Tour of antique ceramic heaters

Vienna, Austria

Experience hosted by Geraldine

60 mins
Includes drinks
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English, German

What you'll do

You will be welcomed in a shop with a collection of over 40 Austrian antique tiled stoves (=ceramic heaters), of which over 25 can be viewed in this Airbnb exhibition. Vienna is known for art. Austria is known for excellent handcrafting. The combination is united in this collection of beautiful ceramic heaters which were produced between 1800 and 1900.

You are invited to visit the collection and get an insight into how they were originally produced, and how they can be used for heating - and decoration - today.

You will find out how my father was a pioneer in technically equipping these delicate antiques at modern level. You are invited to dive into a company history of more than 110 years in Vienna. You will learn about the Austrian "Gemütlichkeit" (=coziness) and why it is strongly entangled with the heat of a stove.... It's a unique experience.

Discover an exhibition which is unique worldwide! It is part of a traditional family-owned business, which exists since over 110 years. I am the daughter of a well-known hand crafting master for fire places, and I'm showing you over 25 orignal Austrian ceramic heaters from the Art Nouveau, Biedermeier and Empire times. Each piece is unique and antique. The colours are beautiful and the motives are inspiring.

A verz interesting experience to learn about antique tile ovens some as old as 250 years old and to hear about their history and construction. An experience that someone doesn't find elsewhere.
