  • Christmas Market - am Capmus

    Vienna Shopping

    Weihnachtsdorf am Uni-Campus is listed in some booklets as one of the bigger x-mas-markets in Vienna, BUT I think this place is of NO real interest for the tourists : No special scenery around this place, it is ment mainly for the local people with a lot of food-stands and attractions for the children. When you have a hotel just around the corner,...

  • Mozart Chocolate

    Salzburg Shopping

    Mozartkugeln are small chocolate and pistachio marzipan balls originally made in Salzburg in 1890 by the Furst company. Today Salzburg is awash with variants of the original and they make for a nice gift for family or friends on your return home.

  • Souvenirs

    Innsbruck Shopping

    Where to buy a souvenir? I really don't know the best place to buy one, but I do know there are many shops in the Altstadt that sell all kinds of souvenirs. You can buy Traditional clothing for men and women, or T Shirts, the latter I found to be quite expensive. We did manage to buy a good quality winter jacket for a price better than what we...

  • getriedegasse (street)

    Salzburg Shopping

    Getriedegasse is Salzburg's main street and is a pedestrian only street for much of its length. It's known for the custom held over from the middle ages of displaying signs on the outside of the shop that are descriptive of what the shop does. This was to aid the non-literate.

  • Swarovski Crystal

    Innsbruck Shopping

    As Swarovski stores become part of the chain store globalization that encompasses the world, it’s not something I would normally seek out. To be honest, I didn’t know much of anything about it aside from it was crystal and fairly expensive at that for what’d call cut class. I was, however, traveling with my sister and she was interested in getting...

  • The Chirstmas Store

    Salzburg Shopping

    The shop was absolutely gorgeous and sold thousands upon thousands of decorated Christmas eggs. I hand carried six home from Austria to Florida and wish I had carried sixty home. Each egg is unique and the colors and variety were very beautiful.

  • Opening Times

    Innsbruck Shopping

    The hours of operation of stores in Innsbruck were a lot shorter than what I am used to here....a city that never sleeps, N.Y.C. Stores will close around they have longer lunch time hours. Don't take grocery stores for granted either because they close around 6ish also. There are enough grocery stores that you can find necessities....

  • The Dutyfree-times are over !

    Kleinhaugsdorf is a small village at the Austrian Border to Czechia.When the iron curtain fell down, a young man from Austria had the clever idea to build a duty-free-shoppingcentre in "No-man's land" between the 2 countries and he called it Excalibur City.He became a multi-millionaire within only a few years and built a city around his dreams of...

  • Shop till you drop !

    I made quite a popular page about this Designeroutlet here on VT, obviously a lot of people are interested in this kind of shoping ! Dont expect to get the lastest fashion for those special prices ! In most of the shops you can read it clearly already in the window : all of these goods are from previous seasons, and / or some of the items may have...

Most Christmas markets in the city operate from the middle of November untill 23rd December each year.

  • An exclusive upmarket shopping centre

    Ringstrassen-galerien Shopping Mall is an exclusive upmarket shopping centre located right in the heart of the city of Vienna. This is a very impressive shopping complex and is probably the best shopping centre in the city! There are approximately 60 shops with several cafés, bars and restaurants in the shopping complex.

  • Shopping for souvenirs such as fridge's...

    You may shop for souvenirs at Kalke Village just opposite Hundertwasserhaus at the corner of Löwengasse and Kegelgasse in the third district of Vienna. There are quite a number of souvenir shops in the village. Prices seems to be fixed and reasonable. An interesting section in the village is the art gallery on the first floor where admission is...

  • Unique Wooden Gifts

    This shop offers all kinds of things hand-carved from wood. They range from simple to ornate. They have an especially large selection of Christmas ornaments. Prices have a wide range but I thought they were all reasonably priced considering items were hand-carved.

  • Dressing Like the Locals

    One of the fun things to do in Salzburg is people watch. People there have costumes worn on special occasions and they are beautiful. The women's outfits, called dirndls are especially lovely and this shop is a great place to look around and see not only completed dirndls but also the fabric to make one. They sell a few local crafts but the fabric...

  • Shop Like an Empress

    Located on Vienna's main shopping street, ZSJ has been around for hundreds of years. It's where the Empress Maria Theresa used to buy her linens. The work they do here is wonderful. Everything on offer is beautiful and they have items to fit every budget. Just try to get out of there without buying everything! All linens are nice but, for an...

  • Dirndls galore.

    This is where I bought my Dirndl or Austrian dress from. If it is still there I advice you to go in it is a treasure trove of gifts. I went and tried 3 dresses on and picked the one I really liked, the trouble is now its 15 years old and it does not fit now. I might have to go back. Dirndls, shoes and very nice gifts. The dress cost me £70, 15...

  • Shop where the Austrians shop

    The first time I visited Austria (in the late 1980s) I found it terribly expensive. The next time (maybe ten years later) I found it less so - probably because of inflation in UK. The next again time I found food prices had come down because Austria had, by then joined the European Union.Unless you want to pay over the odds for things avoid the...

  • Everything you could wish for...........

    Salzburg has everything you need. Shoe shops, wine, bread and books. The streets at Christmas were well decorated and had that happy feeling associated with Christmas.

  • US Army Shop

    The US Army Shop is not as it seems for weapons and so, but it is full of great collection of clothes and shoes and boots coming from USA and UK!the prices are really good, and you will easy find the shop in downtown, the main street is large and straight, just follow it and you'll reach it!


    For shopping in Vienna look no further than Karntnerstrasse, the Oxford st of Vienna.

  • Great Gift Ideas at Cristkindlmarkt

    It's held in winter, near Christmas. Various small stalls selling arts and crafts made by locals. It also serves Gluhwein (hot wine) and you can collect the glass (Some European cities has this kind of markets always have gluhwein and they have different glasses)The sausages and pork knuckles are worth trying! Nice and warm to eat in cold winter...
