It's wierd to have such an olde worlde street with a McDonalds and H&M on! The shops blend in well to the street, especially with the unique McDonalds sign. Cobbles add to the feel of an old street, as do the brightly coloured buildings. Lots of little passageways are located off this street which take ages to explore. A huge... More

Found out about the multitude of shopping passages and tunnels on YouTube, and it was a shame we only had a few hours to spend in Gstattengasse. To do it justice you really need a day, at least, to spend there especially as its within the old town. Loads of eating places and drinking places so a day could really... More

It is delightful street filled with shops, cafes and restaurants of all culture and variety, some hi so shops and some souvenir, something for everyone. And lots of... More

The shop signs are fantastic. Originally, they were a sign that the shopkeeper had the appropriate qualifications. I had to ration the photos - I could have taken dozens. There are really unusual signs and they make the street very attractive.

A popular street for shopping lovers. High fashion shops with high prices. This area is always crowded. There are plenty of shops to see and visit. Every shop has its own stylish banner. All shops are closed on Sundays.

The Gstattengasse is a very charming street in the center of the city. Some parts of it are quiet and there are some very nice bars and restaurants along it. Here you will also find the lift to the Museum of Modern Art. I love the more remote part of it, as there is my favorite Pub, the Murphey`Law located.

The facades are nicely painted, a small street from the market place to the end of the Old Town but, so it seems, always crowded. Try to go there early mornings.

You will go along this street to get to the monchsberg lift. Some of the buildings are colourful, many have their dates on the eaves. There is also one of the old town gates. Probably worth a visit if you have time.

This side of the Old Town is an absolute treat to your eyes with colourful buildings with few of them not so common like Bright Yellow or Darkish purple and built right up to the Monchsberg Rock. The Food stores and sweet shop are an absolute treat to your tummy if you are a hardcore foodie.

Wonderful & Colourful old buildings with their dates of building emblazoned on their facades. Built up against the imposing rock face of the Salzburg heights and with shops & cafes to suit all, well worth a stop on a sunny afternoon.
