The Kohlmarkt is one of the oldest shopping streets in Vienna. Translated from German, Kohlmarkt means"coal market". This name is not accidental, since charcoal was traded here in the 14th century.
After the Hofburg was built on Kohlmarkt, manufacturers of luxury goods and high-quality goods began to settle nearby. Until now, the famous confectionery"Demel" is located here, which in the past was the supplier of the imperial court. This street was also home to jewelers who served the imperial family.
Today, Kohlmarkt is home to many historic buildings and expensive shops. It is considered one of the most expensive shopping streets in Vienna.
