I love luxury, my travels are always about history, food, beauty...so how can I miss this street? No way. Kaerntnstrasse is packed with high end fashion stores like Louis vuitton, Chanel, Hermes, Gucci, to name but the few. I was lucky to buy sandals in Louis Vuitton, which by the way had exceptionally friendly staff. Highely Recommended! It was another... More

I visited several shops and I must say that the level of luxury and service in the shops are top notch! The walkway streets are very active with a diverse group of people. Visited... More

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.

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...

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.
