Shopping tips in Salzburg
Shopping in Salzburg's city centre
If you are planning a shopping tour through Salzburg, make sure that you go past the Judengasse (lane of the Jews) and the Goldgasse (gold lane), which really deserves its name. You can find small gifts and souvenirs in the Kaigasse, the Ava-Passage or on the other side of the Salzach River in the Mirabell quarter. Away from the historic centre of Salzburg there are two small shopping malls, the Kiesel and the Forum 1, which you can reach after a 20-minute walk or by public transport.
For those who love to go shopping the biggest shopping mall in Salzburg, the Europark, is an excellent choice. It is only 15 minutes away by car or bus from the city centre, and its opening hours are from 9 am to 6.30 pm from Monday till Thursday, from 9 am to 9 pm on Friday and from 9 am to 6 pm on Saturday. Not only does the Europark boast numerous shops offering nearly every kind of good, it has also been awarded the title of best shopping centre in the world.
The shops in the old town of Salzburg are normally open from Monday to Friday from 10 am to 6 pm and on Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm.
In the evening you can enjoy an excellent dinner at one of the numerous restaurants in Salzburg or relax until 9 pm in the spa area of the Altstadthotel Wolf-Dietrich. There you can plan your shopping trip to the shopping miles and malls in Salzburg for the next day.
