This Italian touch can also be found in the elegant stores and boutiques on and near Kramergasse.
Pleasant street cafes offer a welcome break from shopping where you can rest your tired feet while sampling some of the famous Viennese “Gemütlichkeit”, and the subway, which runs about half the length of Mariahilfer Straße, makes it easy to get around.
Mariahilfer Straße Located by the Westbahnhof, “Mahü”, as this street is lovingly dubbed by locals, boasts the greatest number of shops and stores of all.
Almost all major department stores can be found here selling clothes, leather goods, furniture and accessories, books and stationery.
Kramergasse is lined with beautiful Baroque and Jugendstil houses and leads to the Alter Platz, the city’s historic center, with its old burgher houses and royal palaces, shops and cafés.
The majority of these edifices were created by Italian architects in the 16th and 17th centuries.
