Lose yourself in medieval-era Salzburg on a stroll through Getreidegasse. The atmospheric laneway is lined with upmarket boutiques and shops.
Getreidegasse is as historic as it is pretty. Harking back to Roman days, the thoroughfare has always been the city’s high street, connecting Salzburg to Bavaria.
The street is lined with beautiful medieval and Baroque buildings, built by rich merchants over the centuries. It was in one of these buildings that Mozart was born in 1756.
The Getreidegasse runs south of the River Salzach in the Old Town, heading east to Mozartplatz.
The only way to experience it is on foot, as the street is pedestrianized. Glance up while you walk, to admire the wrought-iron craft signs hanging overhead.
