Window-shopping on historic Getreidegasse
Since the 12th century, Getreidegasse has been Salzburg’s most well-known shopping street, with high-end shops mingling with souvenir shops and restaurants in tall, narrow buildings with ornately designed wrought–iron guild signs. Alleyways lead to tranquil courtyards with vaulted passageways and moulded cornices. Many shops here are pricey and offer a wide selection of fashions, leather goods, and perfumes, as well as traditional handmade "Trachten" from shops like Wenger Trachtenmode and Trachten Stassny. Whether for the old-world splendor, window-shopping, people watching or even some serious spending, a stroll down Getreidegasse is indeed a feast for the eyes.
