Shop after shop you'll find new an amazing stuff to look, pose and ponder. Not one Window display is lesser than the other, and don't miss the sign boards!! They embellish the streets like dainty artwork on display. The souvenir shops have amazing stuff, especially a shop named Candela, it's inside the bylanes on the same street...we spotted it by...

We were in Salzburg on Christmas Eve. The lights everywhere and on Getreidegasse were pretty awesome. There were several people just hanging out. We walked down and looked at all the shop windows.

Just loved this street with its beautiful shops and intricate wrought iron shop signs overhead. Narrow, cobbled street - very busy at midday. Interesting mix of shops.

Busy and narrow cobbled streets with shops on both sides make for a very charming experience. Short visit recommended. You can cover this with your visit to the Dom.

There were so many quaint shops and such a variety. Restaurants a plenty. The narrow streets of old Europe abound. This area is safe, clean, and charming.

Try to stay somewhere overnight and visit before 1000 or after 1630. It's beautiful in the evening when the tourists have gone home.

The area is for pedestrian- the streets are open shop deliveries from about 5AM til 9AM above each shop are iron shop signs - each is unique . The shops specialize in various items from glass,shoes, crystal, crafts, local foods to name a few . Each shop owner we encountered were friendly and polite (many speaking English) . Great cafes...
