Even McDonalds has its own iron sign! Watch out when you walk. You might knock your head on a selfie stick especially when the bus load of tourists descend on this relatively narrow street. There's so much to eat and buy along this street. We...More

Take a leisurely stroll down the Getreidegasse (passing by maestro Mozart's home), and enjoy a multi-faceted shopping experience. Comprising large chain stores, some specialty stores and also some unusual gems, it's well worth a visit. My favourite part are the gorgeous wrought-iron shop signs.

A busy shopping area located in the old city, Getreidegasse means "grain lane" this is also the location of where Mozart lived until the age of 17....the street had a different name when Mozart lived there. The area is picturesque with its wrought iron signs.

The wrought- iron shop signs originated in the Middle Ages when many people were illiterate and relied on the unique sign language. There are many inner courtyard s that add to the charm of this street. They also have passageways between Getreidegasse and Grunmarkt streets.
