Shops in the city centre of Graz

A paradise for shopping lovers

The city centre of Graz is great for shopping. The popular shopping streets offer something for everyone. Amid the trendy shops, you can marvel at impressive buildings such as the “Gemaltes Haus” (painted house). If you need a break from shopping, we recommend spending it at one of the numerous culinary hotspots in the city centre. Once you have recharged your batteries with a popular “Krainer” sausage or a strong espresso, you can continue your shopping spree around town.
