A street for shopping, walking, and sightseeing

Kaerntnerstrasse, for all of its centuries old shops, keeps up with the times. There is a website dedicated to helping you find your way around. You can plan your stops visiting stores in linear order along the walkway or by chronological order starting with Lobmeyr founded in 1823.
