.How to get there

The way the light is set here in a former butcher's shop alone suggests that people with good style and an eye for the extraordinary are behind the interior shop Wohnkultur 66. Anyone in Hamburg looking for classic pieces of Austrian and Scandinavian design furniture and beautiful interior treasures is sure to go into raptures in this shop in the Schanzenviertel neighbourhood.

But even those who are not planning to furnish four walls but have a soft spot for outstanding design should visit Martina Münch and Manfred Werner's unique shop. When it comes to interior design, the two are true connoisseurs.

For over 30 years, the two design historians have specialised in Austrian and Scandinavian antiques and design manufactories: "We don't sell industrially produced furniture. Our classic, old manufactories produce in Denmark and Austria - where they have always produced," explains Martina Münch. "Everything here can largely be attributed to architects." These include selected pieces, a lot of early Swedish and Scandinavian modernism of the 1920s and 1930s and Austrian Werkbund.

For example, anyone looking for organic furniture by Danish designer Finn Juhl will find it hard to avoid Wohnkultur 66. Or the iconic designs from PP Møbler by Hans J. Wegner, a purely Danish family business that still manufactures exclusively in Denmark today.

In addition to furniture by Carl Malmsten, Frits Henningsen and Bruno Mathsson or the sophisticated designs of the avant-garde and radical modernist Friedrich Kiesler, there are also contemporary designs such as the lighting objects by Konrad Friedel - all unique pieces by artists.

Münch and Werner also have contemporary ceramics by German ceramist Lutz Könecke and decorative furnishings such as lamps and accessories by Carl Auböck and Kalmar Werkstätten and carpets by Lila Valadan in their well-curated range. It's worth a visit just to feast your eyes on the sales floor.
