Walking from the Opera House through St. Stephen's Cathedral to this vibrant shopping street is pleasurable. The atmosphere is full of life and the crowd increases in number by the hour. It's the most vibrant dining scene in the city. Furthermore, you'd never feel alone...More

Worth a wander if in Vienna, high class shops set within some lovely older buildings, together with some new buildings too. High priced designer goods and some very expensive jewellery mix with high street names. From Graben the Kohlmarkt leads to the stunning Hofburg Palace.

This is a busy, yet picturesque street full of top-budget brands. It is packed full of people and this detracts from its charms.

Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral)
