Other Streets to Explore in Salzburg
Courtesy - Salzburg Tourist Buro
Getreidegasse is Salzburg’s most beautiful and famous street.
As you wander down the long, cobbled street you will see shops offering clothing, jewellery, local produce, art work, shoes, accessories, interior design objects, books and more.
Fortuneately there are also a fair few cafes when you need a break!
The high, narrow buildings that stand shoulder to shoulder were often lived in by the merchants who sold their wares close by.
If you look closely, you can often see the date of the building's construction, and even the names of previous owners, painted under the roof eaves.
Continuing to look up, you will also see many beautiful wrought-iron guild signs overhead. In times past, these served as 'advertising signs' to tell passers by what was being sold within.
Behind the narrow buildings used to stand gardens, stables, warehouses and workshops.
Whilst these are long gone, still existing are some wonderful little hidden courtyards.
Walk through the side passages and you are bound to find a small yard - home to a cafe, gallery or boutique.
As you get to No. 9 Getreidegasse - stop for a moment. This was the birthplace of Mozart and you can now visit the Mozart Museum which is located within.
