Book store 'Dombuchhandlung'
The ‘Kapitelschwemme’ is a 17th century horse bath, rebuilt in 1732, behind which there is a wonderful haven of peace and quiet. The place where the Anton Strasser’s steam bakery was originally located is a perfect place to surround oneself with books.
The interiors of the large and bright rooms are the work of the Thonet workshop and were designed by expert interior designers. The venue’s close proximity to the nearby catholic church is reflected in the literature: Spiritual and theological literature make up a significant proportion of the books on offer. Religions of the world, history and art history are also well-represented themes; and the portfolio is just as comprehensive in the reference book section.
Particular attention is paid to books for children of all ages. The dedicated team is always ready to provide sound advice, and ensure that every book required is ordered. The second room has a vaulted ceiling and houses the ‘books for life store’ – a forwardthinking project covering every event in our lives, from births, christenings and weddings to illness, death and grieving.
