Walking down this narrow streets with its lovely shops and ornate signs gives you a real feel for the Old Town, before the latter hits you with its squares and churches. Lovely church of St.Blasius is at the end,

Getreidegasse is always a favourite in Salzburg. As a local I do most of my shopping here and always enjoy soaking in the bustling atmosphere. However, there has been a lot of construction going on recently, which is a bit annoying for tourists and locals alike. Hopefully it will finish soon.

The Old Town of Salzburg is lovely. The area of Getreidegasse and Goldgasse is particularly beautiful with lovely old buildings, excellent restaurants and cafes and great shopping. We stayed in an apartment in Goldgasse and loved it. The building was very old yet still warm and comfortable. We walked everywhere enjoying the atmosphere of the Old Town. We ate at... More

Really love this place of the Old Town as this place offers a lot to see and visit, ranging from the iconic Mozart's Birthplace Building (please refer to my earlier review here), to Churches, Opera Theatre etc with lots of cafes, restaurants, retail and souvenir shops all over the place, you will find not having sufficient time to walk and...

One of the must see places in Salzburg, always busy, many tourists, but great to see are the special street signs, the old houses (some are from the 15th century)

Its highly recommended for the gratification of your senses as this is one of the oldest parts of Salzburg. The cobbled streets both sides of which have houses as old as 1000 years give a sneek peak into the history of the city. Mozart's birthplace is located here as also numerous high end shops for the modern day shopaholics. Lots... More

A fun pedestrian shopping district in Old Town. Go to see the unique store signs hanging over the street that take you back in time. I actually didn't go into any store. I just loved walking the historic street and enjoying the unique signs. It's free, it's fun and it's historic. What else could you want in Vienna's Old Town?

This is a narrow shopping street, around that area is not lack of restaurants and cafés. The unique thing about this street is the stores wrought iron guild signs, when you are there you will have fun to figure it out what the store are selling. Even you are not shopping, still a good idea to join the guessing fun.... More
