The Getreidegasse is probably one of the loveliest Shopping streets in the world: a wide range of stores inviting visitors to browse and shop are found behind the elaborately decorated façades, in the traditional passageways and inside the landmarked buildings.
800 choices of pure Shopping pleasure
Whether designer fashions at one of the numerous boutiques or the traditional “trachten” apparel popular across Europe, whether antiques, jewelry, books or music – you will find just what you’re looking for in the romantic old streets of the inner city. 800 stores offer top quality merchandise, trained salespeople and a wide selection. Numerous traditional and modern coffeehouses and restaurants invite guests to sit back and relax after a long day of Shopping.
Salzburg’s loveliest markets
The popular “Green Market” is held in front of the magnificent Collegiate Church from Monday to Saturday, selling fresh local fruit and vegetables as well as exotic delicacies, meat, poultry, fish and seafood, bread, cheese and pastries.
Hobby cooks meet at the “Schranne” market in front of St. Andrew’s Church every Thursday morning. The traditional farmers’ market has a wide selection of fresh local produce.
These markets are supplemented by smaller, weekly farmers’ markets.
Popular Salzburg souvenirs
Mozart souvenirs such as CDs, books, T-shirts, stationery, pads, posters, coins and postcards with the famous family portrait are the most popular souvenirs to take back home from a trip to Salzburg. Those who wish to take a musical momento of the Salzburg Festival back home can purchase CDs of the latest Festival performances and performers – available in good music shops throughout the city.
Illustrated books and books on Salzburg’s history, art and culture are also great memorabilia. Salzburg cookbooks with traditional recipes and tempting dishes are also popular keepsakes.
Numerous second-hand bookshops, art shops and galleries offer watercolor paintings, sketches, etchings and photographs of the city dating back to the late 19th century. Facsimiles of historic documents or famous compositions such as the famous Christmas carol “Silent Night” also make charming souvenirs.
Fragrant nosegays decorated with cinnamon, cloves and a number of other spices, traditional “trachten” costumes and leather apparel and of course the “Original Mozartkugel” chocolates are also typical of Salzburg.
