Leading from the Hauptplatz (main square) to Joanneumring, Schmiedgasse is mainly a pedestrian zone, and a popular shopping area with many small shops and bars. Centuries ago, the street was home to craftsmen, blacksmiths, wainwrights, tinners and gunsmiths. Today, Schmiedgasse - parallel to Herrengasse - offers a historic ambience in which to shop and stroll with friends.
Apart from sightseeing and enjoying the delicious food in Graz, this is definitly a great place for shopping. Worth knowing for ladies – this is a shoe-shopping paradise!
