I love inner court- and backyards – you never know what you may find. Sometimes there are real jewels hidden behind the doors and walls. Today I visited the Pop Up Shop by Vintage Stadl at Berggasse 5 in Vienna. It´s a beautiful building from the outside, elegant entrance and hallway and then there is this gorgeous neo-baroque hall in the courtyard, a treasure!
The building was erected in 1825 by Josef Klee by order of Johann Niernsee. First it was called “Zum Schweizer” and later on “Zum silbernen Brunnen” – this neo-baroque hall seems to have been built in 1890 and was used as a restaurant, the courtyard served as “Schanigarten”. I found an old image (postcard) from the restaurant and the garden with lots of tables while looking for some information on that place. (Try google image search: “Franz Gilly Zum silbernen Brunnen”)
In the last years it has been used by a printer and was filled with huge machines, but renovation works will start soon and an event agency will bring back it´s almost original use as a venue.
Till December 19th the room is filled with beautiful vintage furniture and accessories by Vintage Stadl. The Pop Up shop is opened from Tuesday to Friday 10.00 – 18.00 – don´t miss it!
