There are lots of opportunities for fans of shopping. It's a pleasure to make purchases in this country, because the service is perfect, and the locals are always friendly and hospitable. By the number of shopping centers, Vienna is not inferior to other European capitals.

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 www.orangesmile.com

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.

Stairs to Schlossberg

From the series “Furious Footways Around the World That Make You Dizzy”
One of the main attractions of the Austrian city of Graz is the Clock Tower Schlossberg.

Harakiri Ski Slope

From the series “Top 13 Furious Ski Resorts and Pistes”
The name of 'Harakiri' ski slope, located on the territory of the Austrian health resort Mayrhoven, speaks for itself and completely reflects the level of its complexity. 'Harakiri' is considered to be the steepest ski slope in Austria. On some of their routes the inclination forms 78 degrees. Not even all professional athletes manage to overcome such a difficult run, not to mention self-assured amateur athletes.

Severe shocks, breaks and contortions - so only the most harmless consequences the inexperienced skiers can get after the impetuous and short descent. The world-famous sportsman Tobias Fankhauser was one of the first to take advantage of the 'black' course and to use it for regular training sessions. He held the successful descent to 'Harakiri' piste for the highest sports … Read all
