Strolling Kärntner Straße

Strolling Kärntnerstrasse

Kärntnerstrasse is the street that runs between the Stefansdom and the Opernring, and together with the Graben, is the upscale shopping district of Vienna – always bustling with tourists. This is one of the more famous noodle and Wurst stands, not far from the Oper. Also on a side street off Kärntnerstrasse is the architecturally famous American Bar, with its stained glass American flag canopy over the door. The bar was designed inside and out by Adolf Loos:

I never ventured in – it’s tiny and smoke-filled, but a peek through the window is like stepping back into a film noir, or the early 20th century.
