While Kaerntner strasse is still one of the most popular streets for shopping in Vienna, nowadays the more high luxury shops are rather towards the end of Graben and Kohlmarkt. Nonetheless a few shopping tips, which I hope will interest travellers. For shoes: I can highly recommend the Salamander shoe shop at the start of Kaerntnerstrasse close to the subway... More

One of the most famous streets in Vienna is almost always crowded, especially around the Christmas time. But still, it is an elegant street with exclusive shops, nice coffee bars and beautiful buildings.

We visited and walked on Kaerntnerstrasse several times during our visit to Vienna in December 2015 and January 2016. It was very busy between Christmas and New Year's. There are many shops, restaurants and cafes. It is a bit touristy but a nice walk to go from Saint Stephens Cathedral to the Opera which takes less than 15 minutes or... More

This is a huge street that has every type of shop you could imagine from high end international retail outlet's down to local retail shop's. The street roughly is from ST STEPHANS CATHEDRAL to the VIENNA OPERA HOUSE and has a large pedestrian area. But this street is not all about shopping as there are some wonderful bar's and cafe's...

Any time of the day, shopping, sightseeing, nightclubs. In winter Glühwein, or anytime Bratwurst. Sit out in summer on terrace of the Coffeeshops, watch the tourists pass by.

The Koroška Street and see in detail because it is the top of the top. Take a look at the famous cathedral or the pride of the city of Vienna...

A charming street. On a three day trip to Vienna this was our daily hangout after a day of sightseeing. You can grab some quick shopping or go to one of the restaurants or cafes. A very charming place

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
