While this street has some historical significance (including Mozart's birthplace) it's otherwise a typical European shopping street that is quite crowded and therefore difficult to take if you don't necessarily want to spend your afternoon in the company of other tourists. Typical upscale brands. I wouldn't avoid it, but unless I needed something like lederhosen or Tyrolean hats, I wouldn't... More

If you only have limited time while visiting Salzburg, you should start with the Getreidegasse. Probably the most intresting street within the city, you can get a good, compressed impression of Salzburg.

Somehow this busy shopping and tourist street manages to incorporate both old Tyrolean charm and modern mega stores. All the stores you expect to see on a busy shopping street and their bright lighting inside adorable Tyrolean charm.

To vizit and to spend few hours. A highly decorated street with many shops, many people with good quality shops and good restaurants. Basically it is the heart of the city and should be visited by any tourist who wants unforgettable memories in this city.

This is the place to go to buy quality Austrian made souvenirs. A small little shop packed with hand made items from all over Austria. You won't find made in China stuff here. Obviously the price reflects this, but then again why buy junk when you can buy things with meaning and soul.

Lovely cobbled street in the centre of the old town. There is a multitude of shops and restaurants which each have their own elegant and intricate guild signs that hang off the buildings all the way down the street adding to the charm of this narrow alley. There are a lot of passages off the street with more shops and... More

Wonderful memories indeed, for this charmed alley over a love bridge is indeed a not to be forgotten experience in Salzburg. For those musically blessed, you surely would be... More

One of the many streets in Salzburg which is beautiful to wander down. Cobbled streets, huge range of shops and many windows to browse. Beautiful iron work for many of the stores. Lovely.

You will love this pedestrian street. It is the Main Street you will automatically wind up on as you cross over the Makartsteg. Filled with shops of all culture, souvenir, local and otherwise. Mozart's birthplace is located here. It will eventually take you to Mozartplatz. He's, there is a McDonald's and Starbucks there, but it really is a street of... More
