The Graben and the Kohlmarkt are known as Vienna's most elegant shopping streets. All the famous brand names are represented here: Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, Chanel, and Armani and others.. Peterskirche, the oldest church in Vienna and Pestsäule, Memorial monument, are placed on Graben. Graben street is also very nice place for festivals and celebrations.. we were here on 31th....

The 'Graben' has become a very crowded shopping place in Vienna with a lot of historic buildings. If you visit Vienna, you have to come here. Years ago, we enjoyed here the 'Schrammelmusik' and people were walsing spontaneous in the street. Unfortunately, this charming habitude has disappeared or was I at the wrong moment here?

Kohlmarkt is an interesting street for its shops and especially Demel bakery, a favorite of Empress Sissi. The majority of the shops are luxurious brands, and souvenirs shops are way to expensive for what they offer.

I always find myself wandering here, it is kind of the spiritual heart of the city, with the moving statue to mark the end of the plague.

Lovely place to stroll and people watch. Apart from H andM the shops are out of reach to mere mortals, but it is nice to look.

He is best known and pedestrian shopping streets of Vienna. There you will find several shops, but also quite expensive. However you can enjoy a wonderful ride and drink your coffee. Certainly it is a very enjoyable activity!!

Best place for pedestrians to find excellent cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops, shopping malls and historical buildings. The shops are generally open from 9.00am to 07.00pm. The well-known porcelain shop Augerten and jeweler Heldwein are also located in this area.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood 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 centre. 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.
