Take a leisurely stroll down the Getreidegasse (passing by maestro Mozart's home), and enjoy a multi-faceted shopping experience. Comprising large chain stores, some specialty stores and also some unusual gems, it's well worth a visit. My favourite part are the gorgeous wrought-iron shop signs.

A busy shopping area located in the old city, Getreidegasse means "grain lane" this is also the location of where Mozart lived until the age of 17....the street had a different name when Mozart lived there. The area is picturesque with its wrought iron signs.

The wrought- iron shop signs originated in the Middle Ages when many people were illiterate and relied on the unique sign language. There are many inner courtyard s that add to the charm of this street. They also have passageways between Getreidegasse and Grunmarkt streets.

Lovely to walk the streets lined with shoppes, cafes, and more. Plenty of places to stop for cake and coffee or gelato. Was here at holiday time years ago, and it was even more beautiful. Loved Mozarts birthplace.

This is no flea market its a high end shopping street. If you are looking to splurge in shopping this is one of the places to go to.. apart from this lane there is a shopping street near Mirabell platz which has local brands. Decent collection at much affordable prices. Plus there is a shopping lane behind the Dom Carhedral..... More

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

Narrow but charming street. As the heart of the old city and the place of Mozart it is always crowded of tourists. Walking along the street you find lots of shops or else you can can have something to eat or drink.
