Shopping is not worth here. It's very expensive. But you can sit in one of the cafe and enjoy the street and the life of Vienna

A lovely area to wander around, having circumvented the 'Mozarts' outside the gothic church, there are plenty of high quality shops available in a pedestrianised zone as well as the odd bar or cafe to have a sit down and a drink. Don't forget to make sure youhave a good look around the church !!

The place is always crowded with tourists, day and night, weekday or weekend, and sometimes it feels like a giant open-air mall, with luxury shopping outlets interspersed with wurst stands and al-fresco cafes. These do not have the cool of the Mediterranean cafes, but still can be a good stop for a cup of coffee and people (or should I... More

This is the main place for tourist and it's filled with people everyday from day to night. This is also the place where St Stephen cathedral is located. A main shopping and eating area.

The center of Vienna indeed, and knee deep in tourists. By all means check it off your list on the way to more interesting venues.

Lots of people, lots of shops and lots of food places! If you want to buy anything that's the place. It's right next to Albertina and the Cathedral also. Worth a visit!

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.
