A very nice European shopping street. All the main brands are here. In the street you can shop but also find some nice places to eat (in the street itself and in the small streets around it). A great vegan restaurant (named "Swing") in in one of the small streets around. There's also a vegan supermarket in this area.

Mariahilfer Strasse is the next most busiest street in Vienna about shopping and take a walk after Kaerntnerstrasse and Graben! It has everything from attractions to brands shops to supermarkets, this is a really long street that starts (or ends, it depends from where are you going to start it) from the Westbahnhof and goes all the way to Maria...

A retail overload ! - Lovely upmarket shops with everything catered -for ; A liberal sprinkling of take-away kiosks, restaurants, coffee shops and huge brightly-lit multi-storey retail giants. Something for everyone here in a 2-mile car-free pedestrian area. Don't forget to walk SIDEWAYS, though :) - There are great little shops in the dozens of side-street and malls which all... More

As in any other big city the once small authentic shops are disappearing and also in Mariahilferstrasse. Everything is clean although the smell of deep fried oil is to be found almost everywhere

This is the main shopping street in Vienna. It is good for a walk or a stroll and definitely one of the streets you need to see if you are a tourist. Having said that, I don't find Mariahilfer Strasse overly exciting for shopping, it is only the old buildings around that make it interesting. Good for a walk all... More

Very nice shopping street, lots of shops, stores, coffee places, restaurants, terraces in the summer... The street is very long and crowded but very beautiful at night. It is beautifully illuminated especially during the winter holidays. Must see it!

the street is much better after the traffic was more or less restricted, it is a colorful, calm but vivid, abundant Viennese street. a must for every addicted shopper ;)

Excellent idea, that Vienna made this street a pedestrian zone. From the Westbahnhof until the Ringstrasse, hundreds of shops, department stores, restaurants, cafes. Take a pleasant walk, sit into a cafe, or a terrace, watch the people, and relax. Must see.

Like any other main shopping street here are all the shops you find all over the western world. + a few local brands/stores We did not visit any shops at all, By all means, see for yourself, but you may find other more attractive areas. The street is very long so there will be a lot of walking to see... More

You got money to spend while in Wien? This is the most beautiful and amazing place where you should go! Go see it, the reviews simply can't describe it!

Staying in Neubau

Neighbourhood Profile
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
