Browse shops, people-watch, soak up history, and enjoy a Viennese coffee at the Café Central.
A historic covered gallery.
Part of the Palais Ferstel in the Herregasse district, this enormous glass-roofed arcade was designed by prominent architect Heinrich von Ferstel in 1810, and today offers some of the city's priciest and most exclusive shopping, as well as a courtyard with a much loved fountain of a Danube water nymph. As you stroll this busy passageway, you'll come across the Café Central, a unique and historic spot where we recommend you have a seat and enjoy a delicious Viennese coffee whilst people watching and soaking up the history around you.
