Kaerntnerstrasse is in the heart of the city, can't miss it. A nice pedestrian zone with tons of shops and eateries. When visiting the historic city center chances are you will walk on this street sooner or later.

It is a shopping and promenade place from the Opera to the St. Stephen Cathedral. Atmosphere combines local taste, imperial air and touristic multi-language visitors. It is typical for breathing a multicultural environment.
