The pedestrian only runs from St Stephens Cathedral to past the State Opera House and features souvenir stores, luxury goods and fashion, restaurants and cafes etc. As we were brewer on a Sunday, it...

This is one of the main shopping streets in Vienna and cars are banned, which makes it a lovely street to wander.

This street along Graben are the main shopping streets of Vienna. There are tons of things to do along this street, including some great coffeehouses and great shops! As expected it was quite busy but it was safe! Take some time to explore it!

A great place to people watch, dine and shop. This is the centre of the city with so many great places to see. Many beautiful cafes to sit, relax and enjoy a glass of wine, a coffee & strudel and watch the people walk by.

This is the centre of Vienna, a great street to walk on for shopping and taking a break in the old and very historic coffee shops. Its a must go for every tourist as it takes you the Stephanplatz and Graben.

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.
