The amazing things about the Getreidegasse Street is that all the shops have traditional signs and none are electric or flashing. I was informed by a native of Salzburg that this is the law/decision made by the Mayor of Salzburg. So even McDonalds has to comply! lol. So amazing. Many of the signs are artistic. This pedestrianized street is indeed... More

The street is inside old town of Salzburg. It is a pedestrian street and really crowded one. There are lot of Sovenier shops. I recommend you to walk in around 5 shops and decide which one is cheaper to purchase as the prices were not same on all shops.

You can just enjoy guessing which sign means which shop. In the medieval age the shops put such sings outside so that analphabetic people could find out easily. In this pedestrian street you can find souvenirs, clothes (modern and austrian styles), restaurants, cafés, etc. Mozart's Birthhouse is also here. This street is a "must" in Salzburg!

You'll have to wander down this pedestrian shopping street which has been around since Roman times and admire the beautiful items in the shop windows. You will also walk by a bright yellow building which is well known as Mozart's birthplace. Make sure you look up to see the charming wrought iron shop signs. Even the "McDonald's" restaurant has its... More

One of the must do, when in Salzburg. Have a look to spot the brass cobble stones. These tell a story about people who suffered, or were killed, during world war 2. Also try to walk through all the connecting walkways and set yourself back in time. Do not forget the sample THE BEST of the mozart balls from Fürst.

What I love best about this street is the craftsmanship of the signs. The Red Bull store was a favorite for my family. I wish that there weren't chains here, like McDonald's and Starbucks, but that wouldn't stop me from visiting. It's a pedestrian way, so that's always a bonus. Don't miss it.

We loved walking about this grand street...photogenic from every corner and each end! It is full of shops, cafes, restaurants, absolutely gorgeous shop signs, interesting architecture, specialty food shops and more! It is a great people place. Shopkeepers were very kind and helpful. It is a great place to find quality Austrian chocolates and liqueurs to bring home as gifts.... More

Some interesting shops and some great signs above the shops, even McDonalds sign looked subtle. I liked the Red Bull shop - staff very helpful and gave excellent advice and information. While we were there in July 2015 there were a lot of roadworks going on making the pavements cramped and uneven. Nice to walk along in the evening when... More

While this is an old street of Salzburg with old decorations, the shops sell not only tradition clothes but modern fashions as well. Souvenirs and postcards can easily be gotten from here. Most importantly, Mozart birthday place was at this street too. This street also leads to Festung Hohensalzburg.

Salzburg is my new long weekend getaway city in Europe. From the shopping on Getriedegasse, to the castle, to the churches, to the river walk shops, to the beer halls - all of it is great. People are very nice and accommodating to my horrible German, so they just start talking to you in English anyway. Lots to see and... More
