Kärntner Straße is the most famous street in Vienna, most important and most luxurious. It has stores like Rolex, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, among many other so chic as.

Unless the objective of your trip to Vienna is a shopping spree, this street is something you can do without. It's just shop after shop. Something you can find in every European city.

Just off the Ring Strasse, opposite the Staat Oper the pedestrian shopping strip stretches to Stefanstlatz and the famous Stefansdom, with the tall spiky steeple, which can be seen from many parts of Vienna. The range of shops are varied and interspersed with expensive souvenir shops. Still worth the look.

How we came to Kaerntnerstrasse is because we were looking to buy Swarovski products as well as Augarten plates. Then we noticed Sky Bar and spent 2 hours pouring over wine and cakes for high tea. Before we realised it, we were here for nearly 4 hours. This is the central shopping area that no travellers can miss. Many bars,... More

Kärntner Straße is the main drag in the centre of Vienna's tourist heartland first district. It runs from the Oper to Stephansplatz, two of Vienna's iconic buildngs. The link between these parts of the central district makes it almost inevitable that a visitor to Vienna will find themselves on Kärntner Straße at some point. The street itself is pedestrianised.

Kaerntner Strasse is the important pedestrian street, which connects Stephensplatz (St. Stephen's Square) with Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera House) in the historic city centre of Vienna. Here you can find hotels, restaurants, bars, historic cafes, shops, souvenirs and important attractions, making this a likely destination for most visitors at some point during their time in Vienna. There is plenty... More

multiple stores that you will be able to get your retail shopping fix. Cafes, souveniours, clothing...you name it you can probably find it. Very impressive swarovski window display... just be mindful of valuables as this is a busy touristy/pedestrian area...

There are so many shops.....lane ways, eateries etc....there is a danger to hurry.....take your time ....as there is so much to delight in.....from international designer labels to Viennese fashion. Shop, rest, shop, rest and more shopping. Enjoy!

Car-free street, this is the place to be for some window shop or to buy some souvenirs. Probably you will walk through this street going from the Vienna’s Opera House to Karlsplatz to go to the St. Charles ‘s Church anyway, but even if you don't, worth the visit.
