Self-Guided Walking Tour of Salzburg
A Walk of Discovery through SalzburgThere really is only one place to start any tour in Salzburg: Getreidegasse. The narrow road with its ornate facades and iron trade signs is a staple for visitors and locals alike. Once you have reached Number 9, you are in for a special treat at Mozart’s Geburtshaus. The birthplace of Salzburg’s world-famous wunderkind allows you to see the family’s apartment the way it was left over 250 years ago and even features a wonderful little museum honoring the composer and his work.
Next up is the Judengasse, a historically Jewish street that originated in the 13th century and now features expensive designer boutiques and chocolatiers.
Make your way to Goldgasse, where Salzburg’s goldsmiths once made their homes, and discover the precious antiques and Trachten that are sold here.
Finally, Steingasse is waiting for you. Historically, it was where the salt shipments from Hallein arrived, and you can still feel the ancient stories of this street when you're standing between the medieval buildings.
