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.

It is very interesting, important and authentic baroque old street in Old Town in Salzburg (Altstadt). Old buildings, Mozart's Birthplace (Mozart Gerburtshaus), restaurants, shops... and almost everything is near this street. Instead of house numbers, all houses have beautiful old-style signs, even famous shops.

The window shopping was great, but also the architecture and the nice signs hanging off the buildings. It got quite crowded at times, but we were able to detour. There are several other small streets in this same area that were also cute.

Love just walking up and down - and window shopping - but also the shops are almost all delightful. Do not forget the great boutiques and shopping areas OFF the Getreidegasse ... But Getreidegasse is still uniquely Salzburg.

This is the major shopping area called Getreidegasse in Salzburg. The birthplace of Mozart is situated along this path. You can still those wrought-iron guild sign hanging above a shop.
