3 Best Places to Shop in Carinthia and Graz, Austria

Steirisches Heimatwerk

Fodor's choice

The Heimatwerk shop is associated with the local folklore museum and stocks a good variety of regional crafts and luxuries.


For a wide selection of wine, cold meats, olives, and chutneys, as well as hard-to-find Styrian cheese varieties, go to Käse-Nussbaumer, near the Hauptplatz.

Mowara Moser

This three-story bookstore is at the end of Graz's main street, Herrengasse, near Jakominiplatz. Moser bustles with people buying postcards, CDs, children's books in multiple languages, and quirky gifts (though not from local dealers). There is a large selection of English fiction and nonfiction on the second floor, as well as cookbooks with Austrian cuisine written in English. There is a basic no-frills coffee shop on the top floor.

Am Eisernen Tor 1, 8010, Austria
