The Freyung Passage is an elegant shopping arcade built in the 19th century as part of the Ferstel Palace. The arcade links the Herrengasse with the Freyung historic square. The arcade was designed by architect Heinrich von Ferstel in 1860. The marble-clad passage with pilasters and vaulted ceiling is lined with luxury stores. There is a wonderful chocolate shop and the Cafe Central which was in the 19th century the favorite meeting place of the literary Jung-Wien movement. Many notable socialists, including Trotsky, were also regulars here.
