Shopping Walk, Salzburg

Shopping Walk (Self Guided), Salzburg

Meander through the alleys and lanes of the old city to find an exciting mixture of boutiques, international designer stores, jewelers and shops that have been here for decades. Treat yourself to something luxurious when you go to Getreidegasse, the most exclusive shopping street in Salzburg. This busy thoroughfare is close to the city’s cathedral and is an exciting place to come whether you are buying or simply window shopping at its upmarket boutiques. The celebrated composer Mozart was born and brought up in this road.

Linzergasse is known locally as Getreidegasse's little sister for its small, independently run stores that are significantly cheaper than and not as upmarket as those on Getreidegasse. For antiques, books and art, visit the stores and galleries of Goldgasse, so called because there used to be lots of goldsmiths in business here.

Judengasse is another popular shopping destination, especially for a delightful store that specializes in Easter eggs and Easter ornaments. During your shopping trip, you will find ample places to stop for a drink and a bite to eat. One of the most charming locations is the Café Tomaselli on Alter Markt, the ancient market square. It has been in business since 1705 and has been run by the same family for more than 150 years.
