Luxury shopping at the Kohlmarkt

The Kohlmarkt is the place to look for those luxury goods. The area is home to traditional Viennese jewellers like Wagner, Bucherer and Schullin, as well as resonant international luxury brands. Rare pieces can also be acquired at the Dorotheum auction house.

The most prestigious shopping zone in downtown Vienna – also called the "Golden U" – stretches from Hofburg Palace and Kohlmarkt via Graben to Kärntner Strasse. Formerly the location of numerous court-appointed jewellers, international luxury brands such as Cartier, Chopard and Tiffany are the present-day answer to exclusive glittering dreams.

Right on the corner of Graben and Tuchlauben, Wagner runs Austria's largest shop for high-end jewellery. In addition to the jewellery produced in-house, you will also find renowned international brands in the 700 m2 shop. The centrepiece is a special Rolex boutique.

As a Viennese tradition, Bucherer has stood for the highest quality for decades. At its Kärntner Strasse location, the jeweller offers the best in watch and jewellery brands - from Rolex to Patek Philippe to Gucci. Their in-house goldsmith studio specializes in the creation of wedding rings, necklaces and earrings, and also undertakes expert jewelry and watch repairs.

The marble and wooden entrance designed by star architect Hans Hollein at Schullin on Kohlmarkt is reflection of what lies inside – modern design coupled with perfect craftsmanship. The extravagant contours and colours of Schullin jewellery are captivatingly appealing. Delicate coral branches, for instance, are grouped together like chili peppers to create an eye-catching necklace.

The Dorotheum, the venerable auction house, celebrated its 300th anniversary in 2007. Rare items of jewellery, from art deco to the modern age, can either be acquired at auction or purchased directly at the Kärntner Strasse branch or eleven other outlets in Vienna.
