International brands, luxury goods, small boutiques, souvenir shops and Mozart’s childhood home – Getreidegasse has something to suit every taste.
Wrought-iron shop signs loom over the heads of visitors to Getreidegasse , advertising the many businesses and guest houses along the street. While the main stretch hustles and bustles during the day, the romantic courtyards and passageways are usually much quieter. There’s always something to stop and admire in these passageways: a whale bone from Max Reinhardt’s collection, marble balustrades, balconies filled with colourful flowers… there’s plenty to discover.
This street where Salzburg locals and visitors from all over the world stroll with their shopping bags from huge international brands was once where little Mozart and his sister played. The house at Getreidegasse number 9 now features a plaque with golden lettering stating who lived here from 1747 to 1773: Mozart, the most famous son of our city on the Salzach.
Most major fashion brands are represented in the small shops along Getreidegasse. If you fancy a gentle stroll and some shopping, you’ve come to the right place. There are plenty of cafés between the shops, where you can enjoy a brief break from retail therapy.
Getreidegasse is just a 10-minute walk from the Altstadthotel Kasererbräu. Your 4 star hotel for a well earned get-away in Austria’s most beautiful city.
