One of the world’s largest gay and lesbian bookstores is located in Vienna: Far more than 12,000 gay and lesbian titles are in stock at bookstore Löwenherz. From the novel about first love to the scientific non-fiction, from the sex guide to great historical novels – we show you the whole range of literature, as well as all of gay and lesbian films, which are available on DVD. A great CD selection, hundreds of rainbow merchandise products, postcards and much more complete our offerings. And we know our books and movies: Most of the books we have read, seen almost all the movies - we advise and recommend willingly
Löwenherz is also a popular place of the community, because from us you will learn anything new from the scene and get all the magazines, flyers and information materials. Löwenherz is itself a vivid part of the community. Be it in initiating new activities (it was in our store that the Rainbow Parade, the Vienna Pride March, had been brought to first life), be it with the support of established or new initiatives - for we are happy to develop and support the Viennese gay and lesbian life.
Moreover, there is four times a year, a lesbian and a gay catalog, we regularly organize readings and book signings, and last but not least Löwenherz is a apprenticing company - we regularly train apprentices to professional booksellers.
