Nice place to check out when you are in town, small little market at the entrance, a few Mozart tributes and designer shops, not many restaurants but you can find a bite to eat without trouble, Fürst Mozartkugel chocolates from cafe-konditorei is a must.

One of the great narrow but long historic streets in central Europe. Full of great shops, good food and delightful people watching.

I love to walk on this alley with all the iron wrought signs. Lots of quaint specialty shops selling unique stuff and curios, but it could also be expensive. Just walk around and people watch is also a great option :-)

Lovely structures fitting in the old town decor. Impressive how the McDonalds sign was tastefully placed over the restaurant and not big yellow arches destroying the ambiance of the city

Just don't miss this street, or any of the surrounding old town. The architecture, gorgeously crafted signs over each business, beautiful tastefully decorated stores windows, and atmosphere on the street is a one-in-a-million for this fairy tale city.

It is a must not only to walk down here but to explore the alleyways too. One of my favourite shops sells hanging ornaments of silk flowers and spices and ribbon, it is in one of the side alleys. Shame that McDonalds has invaded.

Getreidegasse offers a huge variety of shopping, from international luxury brands to touristy souvenirs: there's something for everyone. Despite it's commercialisation, Getreidegasse retains an authentic historical "feel", with numerous old and ornate shop signs above the heads of the passing crowds, intriguing alleyways, and of course Mozart's Birthplace at No. 9. Although Getreidegasse can be pricey there's always McDonalds for... More

I loved it but spent a bundle. The shops are all pretty pricey but most of the wares high quality. I really enjoyed strolling down the street and marveled at the wide selections of places to go. My only complaint was that I was there during the "off" season (and on a Saturday) - so everything closed at 5:00 and... More

This is a charming neighborhood with wonderful shops. I particularly enjoyed the small alleys through the buildings to parallel streets, which were also filled with shops. One could easily spend a day or two wandering through and checking out all the offerings.
