Kastner & Öhler

Established in 1873, Kastner & Öhler department store has a proud history of over 140 years in Graz. Kastner & Öhler was successful right from the beginning, thus enabling steady expansion and the purchase of neighbouring buildings. The first fashion store in Graz was opened in 1885. Fellner and Helmer, the famous architects and builders of the opera house, erected a new large building from 1912 to 1913. The Dual Monarchy’s biggest department store opened in 1913.

 

In 1991, Szyszkowitz & Kowalski architects redesigned the flagship store in Graz, focusing on the combination of older buildings with modern elements, and adding the Jugendstilhaus, the Mediahaus and a glazed entrance roof together with revamped shop windows and a new façade. The underground car park was finished in 2003 following an 18-month construction period. Its transparent, well-lit and friendly design has set new standards in car park construction throughout Austria.

 

Spanish architects Fuensanta Nieto & Enrique Sobejano converted and rebuilt the store between 2005 and 2010, thus increasing the floor area to 20,000 m² on six storeys and renewing the splendour of this building’s glorious past. Kastner & Öhler’s main highlights include the great entrance hall and the skywalk on the sixth floor offering unique views over the old town of Graz.

 

From the beauty department on the ground floor to the skywalk high above the roofscape of Graz, this fascinating store offers over 500 brands from Armani to Zegna, bringing international flair to Graz and making it one of the world’s leading fashion cities.
