Shopping Tips

The many small shops in the Simmeringer Hauptstrasse provide good neighbourhood shopping for the entire district. Old pubs and restaurants invite one and all to wine and dine, while Szene Wien and Schloss Neugebäude invigorate the cultural milieu.

If you ask the residents of Simmering where they prefer to shop, their answer will invariably be: in the Simmeringer Hauptstrasse. This traditional transit artery – with a history extending back to Roman times – is the centre of the district and the premier shopping street for the locals.

The newly remodelled “Gasometer City” hosts numerous special events and offers even more shopping opportunities.

And of course, the traditional Viennese shopping streets and shopping centres are always within easy reach:

The Kärntner Strasse is just a 10-minute ride away from the Hotel Hahn*** via the U13 underground line and is the main street which runs from the opera house to St. Stephen’s Square.        
In the streets and lanes of the inner city, we find style, tradition and all kinds of surprises. International labels have their flagship stores here, while the Hotel Sacher also sells its highly sought-after cake – even nicely boxed for you to take home with you.

The Kärntner Strasse, along with the Graben and Kohlmarkt , is a pedestrian zone filled with dense crowds of tourists, shoppers and those simply out for a stroll, eagerly encircling the many street artists and musicians along the way. Sitting on shaded benches, you can rest those tired legs, while traditional Viennese coffee houses and fountains provide the refreshing break you seek.

Right off the Kohlmarkt is also the world-famous Demels Bakery & Patisserie.

The Mariahilfer Strasse is the city’s biggest shopping street of all, a place where you can find virtually everything you seek. It divides the 6th from the 7th district and in whose side streets we find hip music shops (e.g. Substance and Rave Up) and shoe shops (e.g. Shu!). Establishing themselves in this area are more and more smaller shops featuring fashions by (as yet) undiscovered designers.
From the Mariahilfer Strasse, you can continue straight on to quartier21 in the MuseumsQuartier. Highly innovative stores have set up “shop” here.  In the Cheap Shop, Pulsinger & Tunakan present both CD’s and vinyl.
