    Kritzendorf was a free stopover just 30 meters away from a train station. We were very close to Vienna and could have hopped on a direct train to visit!

    The thing we'll remember about Kritzendorf is the textile warehouse over the train tracks. We have never seen anywhere with a greater range of fabrics, buttons and ribbon; not even Birmingham rag market! There were two storeys to this huge warehouse and we had to take two trips to take it all in! Like a dressmaker's Aladdin's Cave, there were long walls of floor to ceiling buttons and aisles upon aisles of textiles; Vicky was in heaven! We were very restrained and ended up buying just two meters of a nice grey material with elegant stylised cream heart outlines to make some extra covers for Poppy's bed. The prices were very good and although we only spent €9, they slipped a lovely box of chocolates into our bag for free! Vicky checked afterwards and they weren't even approaching their best before date!Read more
