Shopping in the city of towers


Welcome to the shopping city Waidhofen a/d Ybbs

The venerable walls of the historic townhouses offer space and ambience for a very special shopping experience. A colourful variety of shops attracts with a wide assortment and enchanting cordiality. A glance into the lovingly decorated shop windows makes you want to see the latest trends and you can taste and try to your heart's content in the shops. In many shops, the owners give personal advice - a quality feature that makes Waidhofen stand out from the crowd. From the feel-good drugstore to the magical boutique, whether pure relaxation in the beauty salon, a new outdoor outfit or reading material for quiet hours - many treasures and new favourites can be discovered in the Waidhofen shops.

Culinary delights

A place of pleasure and conviviality are the traditional coffee houses, inns and restaurants. Start a wonderful day with a hearty breakfast, or simply enjoy a sweet classic - Waidhofen's coffee house tradition stands for a variety and quality that is seldom to be found. Whether regional delicacies or international delicacies, whether dinner with a view of the crystal-clear Ybbs or after-work cocktails on the town square - you can relax comfortably or celebrate extensively in the restaurants. As soon as the temperatures allow it, more than 20 guest gardens in the old town alone invite you to linger. Everyone is guaranteed to find their favourite place here.

An experience for all the senses

When it is market day in Waidhofen, there is already early morning bustle. Already in the 12th century the Waidhofners met at the weekly market at the Upper Town Square. Around 40 farmers and market drivers still offer the best the region has to offer on Tuesdays and Fridays - fresh fruit and vegetables, meat and sausage products from their own production, fish specialities, fragrant farmhouse bread, Ybbstal sheep cheese and much more. The Waidhofner weekly market presents a colourful range, fresh products of the best quality and, depending on the season, everything your heart desires.
