The history of Mariahilferstraße in Vienna

Mariahilferstraße is not only Vienna’s largest and most well know shopping street but also the oldest. Its name comes from the former suburb of Vienna and from the baroque church Mariahilf. Before the church is the monument of the composer Joseph Haydn.

Three department stores brought Mariahilferstraße its reputation: Herzmansky, Gerngross and Stafa. Today you will find international fashion chains like Zara, Promod, Benetton, Sisley, Mango, Humanic, Diesel and Puma.
