However, fans of shopping need to remember that many shops do not work on Sunday and on public holidays. This can be a problem during the weekend tours. However, hardly anyone is disappointed in the abundance of opportunities offered. Austria, and in particular Vienna, is far from being perceived as one of the European shopping centers. Anyway, it does not try to compete with Milan or Paris. Nevertheless, here you can always buy quality branded things and save a lot during numerous sales. It is worth adding that the Austrians themselves are not keen to rampant shopaholism in their homeland.
If you still want to combine your vacation with pleasant purchases, you should choose the time taking into account seasonal sales. As a rule, there are sales at the end of the main seasons - in July and August, and also in January and February. Traditional sales are also around Christmas, which is loved by the Austrians. In these periods, it is better to go straight to the center of the Austrian capital and look into every shop. Tourists will definitely be able to find a lot of amazing souvenirs here, as well as high-quality and quite expensive things by famous brands. In this case, everyone chooses exactly what he or she likes. Copyright

The main areas with the highest concentration of brand shops are on Graben and Kertnerstraße streets. They are well arranged avenues aimed mainly for walking. There is a huge number of boutiques here. Steffi store that is seven storeys tall, dominates over all. Each of these floors is dedicated to a certain category - children's, music, women's and men's goods, and much more. If the prices in these places seem too high, then you can go to Mariahilfer Straße. Here, there are shops of well-known brands, various cafes and restaurants, but the prices are noticeably lower. Tourists will find the goods for themselves and for their loved ones.
Vienna, Austria Like in any other country, tourists go to Austria to buy something special. Clothes and shoes can now be found almost everywhere. In Vienna, it’s better to pay attention to watches, optics, and jewelry. You can choose from well-known and less popular brands. Thanks to this, it will be possible to find gifts, both for men and women, easily. Another compulsory souvenir for almost any tourist is a variety of Swarovski items. There, you can buy key rings, various figurines, as well as gorgeous decorations. If there is enough time, you can look at flea markets, where old things and all sorts of trinkets are sold for mere pennies.
