Picturesque section of old Salzburg, the street a relic of Roman times, was once a center for tradesmen. Today it has become a refined area of stylish small bars, book and wine stores.

Due to gas works, most restaurants and shops seem to be closed at the time of visiting. Oct. 2018. Still worthwhile checking out the street where the song Silent Night was written. I understand the street was once upon a time a trade route.

I just loved Salzburg and the Steingasse was a highlight - beautiful buildings and wonderful mix of the old and new. A good mix of all the "usual" shops plus enough local shops to add a bit of flavour and interest.

There is a lot to see and do in town. This street should be part of the town walk to take in the spirit of the town.

The Steingasse is Salzburg's central point for the ultimate shopping experience in a very nostalgic setting. Whether you are looking for a souvenir or something more substantial, you will find it there.

This is one of Salzburg's many charming streets. It is full of charming buildings and interesting architecture.

You can see the old buildings and a house where some musician was born, but not Mozart, he lived on different address wiith his father. This guy was someone else, he composed the holly night.

Nice narrow street with some medieval buildings but no great shakes, cant compare with streets in Strasbourg or Paris. Don't go out of you way yo see this street, stick to the Getreidegasse which is much more nteresting.
