When Tony asks you to let him take some pictures of you, you simply cannot say no, even if you don’t have any make up on your face, even if you don’t have that special outfit on you. Strangely enough, I feel comfortable going around the city and being photographed without wearing lots of makeup in order to look beautiful. He gave me chocolate and we had a relaxed stroll downtown Vienna talking mainly about our favorite subject: photography! Those pictures were taken in Graben, one of the most famous streets in Vienna’s first district, and its surroundings. I really had a nice time.

Graben in Vienna

Hey there! Today, let’s chat about one of Vienna’s must-visit spots: Graben. Now, if you’re wondering what makes Graben so special, let me spill the beans.

First off, Graben isn’t just any old street – it’s more like the heartbeat of Vienna. Picture this: a wide boulevard bustling with life, surrounded by stunning architecture, fancy shops, and cozy cafes. Yep, that’s Graben for you.

Now, when you’re strolling down Graben, keep an eye out for some serious eye candy. You’ll spot the stunning Plague Column, a towering monument that’s been standing tall since the 17th century. It’s a real head-turner, trust me.

And speaking of history, Graben’s got plenty of it. Take a peek at the Griechenbeisl, one of Vienna’s oldest taverns. This place has been serving up brews since the 16th century – talk about ancient vibes!

But Graben isn’t just about soaking in the past – it’s also a prime spot for some serious retail therapy. From high-end designer boutiques to quirky souvenir shops, there’s something for every kind of shopper here. And let’s not forget about the food! Grab a seat at one of the charming cafes and indulge in some delicious Austrian treats. Strudel, anyone?

Oh, and here’s a pro tip: if you want to experience Graben at its liveliest, swing by on a Saturday. That’s when the street comes alive with street performers, market stalls, and a whole lot of buzz.

So, there you have it – a little taste of Graben in Vienna. Whether you’re into history, shopping, or just soaking in the vibes, this boulevard has got you covered. Trust me, you won’t want to miss it!
