Discover & Buy Creative Items

It comes from the heart: namely from the green. Styria is a great place to stroll through the shopping streets of historic cities. Farmers markets take care of Styrian treats and culinary delicacies and have something for gourmets as well as those with a sweet tooth. Tip for fashion and design aficionados: very special pieces can be found in flea markets and design markets or in traditional costume shops.

Have you seen it? If you like to browse through shops, you can't miss the shopping streets in Graz. The best for strolling and shopping in particular are Herrengasse, Schmiedgasse and Sporgasse in the Graz culture and culinary capital. Many more streets and squares can be discovered in the historic old town and invite you to find creative products or design businesses, such as the trendy Lendviertel [Lend district]. But note: not just Graz has attractive shopping streets. Many other historic cities excite with shopping options, stores and specialities - from Mariazell to Bad Radkersburg.
