Getreidegasse is a busy shopping street in the Altstadt (Old Town) of Salzburg and is charming with its cobblestone road and shops on either side of the road. Mozart's birthplace is on this street, the Hohensal Casfle/Fortress is just a 5 minutes walk from here. You have some cute shops selling mementos, Mozartkuggels and off course the top notch brands...

If shopping is of interest then Getreidegasse is a place you don’t want to miss. Looking for Clothing, jewelry, leather, schnapps, or a trendy restaurant? You will find it all here or on a nearby side street. In keeping with the tradition of ‘old town’, all signage must have a middle-ages look to it… even McDonald’s. When your feet get... More

The Getreidegasse is a beautiful pedestrian street from which many narrow side alleys shoot out. This area has a very long history and the buildings here are hundreds of years old--Mozart was born here and walked these streets! The Getreidegasse itself and the side passages are full of many interesting stores, from quaint little shops that sell Christmas decorations, souvenirs,... More

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.

Even the McDonald's sign is quaint! The shops are significantly tourist based with Mozart Kugel everywhere- and unfortunately not the freshest ones were had by me. This street is the highlight of Salzburg for us though , and what makes it stand out as a destination.

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. The house where Mozart was born is in this street. Musicians were performing in front of the shops and the whole area was a photographer's paradise! Stunning views looking along the street to...

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.
