A shopping temple for Graz

Shopping to your heart’s content is something that is easy to do in Graz. From farmer’s markets to art shops and designer boutiques, you’ll find something for every taste. The undisputed highlight is the famous department store Kastner & Öhler, which has been newly renovated to combine historic flair with a modern shopping experience.

When it comes to shopping, Kastner & Öhler is an institution. The famous department store in Graz has been around for decades and has provided generations of locals with all the necessary items daily life requires. After several significant expansions, the store started major renovations which included a new underground parking garage, new glass-roofs in the courtyards and the main staircase, as well as a return to the original interior design with its stucco columns from 1913.

Today it continues to be the place to go to for the best shopping in town. The absolute highlight, however is the new roof terrace, where a viewing platform provides some of the most spectacular views of the Schlossberg and the city. After a few hours (or a day) of browsing the extensive sports-department, the latest designer fashion, or perusing interior design items, a Champagne Bar on the top floor rewards shoppers with refreshments and outstanding views.
