Remember that 90s movie that manages to even get the most rational people amongst us believing in cheesy, banal, romantic love – “Before Sunrise”? Well, it’s a lovely love story about 2 strangers meeting in a train and spending a night in Vienna together, strolling around the city.
Their mutual attraction becomes clear when they enter a record shop and start playing folk-singer, Kath Bloom’s tune ‘Come Here,’ listening to it in a booth while exchanging flirty looks at each other. This scene plays out in the record shop, Teuchtler.
The third-generation family-run record store opened in 1948 as one of the first places in Vienna where music-lovers could purchase 7 inch shellac vinyl records. Back then, Teuchtler focused on classical music. They’ve expanded the variety of music on their shelves over the last 70 years, throughout some politically and socially turbulent times, during which many music genres came to life and evolved. Now you’ll find almost every genre stocked at Teuchtler.
What vinyl we found there: Joseph Haydn’s Opera Herbert von Karajan, given to us as a present from the owner. A big huge thank you!
