It's sad, but most of the medieval aspects (doors, archways, etc.) are either gone or vandalized now. Now it's just a little back alley that kind of smells like garbage.

This is one of the oldest streets on the right side of the Salzburg historic district and runs parallell to the river Salzach. A narrow street with a few bars, shops, bookstores and galleries with very medieval charm. The street consists mostly of old, well preserved residential buildings. At the end of the street is a small marble fountain. There is a very calm atmosphere here which feels nice even though it is very close to the city pulse. Very well worth a visit.

This was a really nice place to walk, and was quiet for being off the beaten path. Nice to see and feel the ages of this residential area.

A good place to take an evening walk, to see houses which are even older than Getreidegasse, and to view the big fortress across the river with the illumination.
The story about WWII American soldiers - who, by the urban legend, went to the Steingasse brothel on a tank(!) but did not fit into the narrow street and crashed the part of the wall on the building #14 - is hilarious, and you still can see that huge scrape ))
Just remember: if you have seen the old narrow streets of Prague or Italian cities - you might not be very impressed, especially in the daytime.
It is probably a good idea to combine the walk through it with a nice beer in the downstairs pub, but they seem to close quite early.

Across the river from the Old Town, Steingasse is an atmospheric narrow street, which winds its way parallel to the river and main road. Joseph Mohr, writer of 'Silent Night' ('Stille Nacht') lived at number 31 (a plaque on the wall of the house says this, but you'd need to know who Joseph Mohr was!). However the whole street is well worth a stroll. It's mainly residential now: it used to be Salzburg's main thoroughfare, lined with shops and market stalls, but now it's quiet but no less interesting for that. Well worth a look.

I visited the street particularly to see the plaque which portrayed where the writer of the lyrics (Joseph Mohr) of Silent Night resided at some stage of his life. I never found the house and also did not see a plaque after walking the entire street twice! The street offers good exercising opportunities!

A quieter lane in Salzburg if you want to walk on a cobbled pathway dating back to the Roman period. Quite a relaxing and tranquil walk as not many tourists come here and the alley is narrower as compared to other pedestrian pathways in Salzburg. There are also not many shops on both sides of the lane, and you can enjoy a different side to Salzburg than the touristy one.

Go here in the morning, with no one else nearby. You will enjoy the peaceful beauty of this place. It's very near to everything else and isn't long as well. Can be covered in 15 mins, including all photography.
