    Local outfits

    by zaffaran Written Jan 8, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: I don't mean only one shop, but I'd like to focus your attention on numerous shops selling local men's and women's outfits called "tracht". What I very like is that people really wear this type of clothes, and , what is more, thera are many more up-to-date costumes which are inspired by these traditional ones.

    What to pay: Quite expensive despite seasonal sales

    Sporer: alcohol

    by iaint Written Apr 25, 2012

    Another good place to pick up a present or memento. It’s a high class specialist alcohol “outlet”.

    Unusual - you can buy bottles to take away, or have a drink at the tiny bar. You can even taste the owner’s suggestions before you decide. I tried 4 different Schnapps before buying - not full measures, but still...

    I settled on the owner’s home made raspberry Schnapps.

    It’s opening hours are “shop” rather than “bar” and I think it closes at 7pm. I was surprised how busy it was at 11.30am when we went in for our Schnapps tasting.

    They sell wine, beer and whisky as well. Probably other stuff too, but that’s what I noticed. They stock a very knowledgable range of Scottish malt whiskies. I was impressed with that as well as the range and quality of Schnapps.

    What to buy: Scnapps. Home made & good quality.

    Wine - local (ie Austrian).

    What to pay: A half liter set me back €21.80.

  • the most dangerous shop in Austria: Zotter Chocolate

    by bookgirl33 Written Oct 30, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Zotter is on the end of the Getreidestrasse near the Horse Pool. It's a little out of the way, but it is worth the trip to find it.
    Handmade, fair trade chocolate made in Austria. They do their own version of the famous Mozart chocolates. Smaller and more like truffles dipped in cocoa powder.
    They have chocolate bars. Be warned this is not a regular chocolate bar. They have peanut butter and bacon, olive and lemon, rose and basil, chocolate chili, cashew and pinapple(which is amazing) Scotch whiskey and champagne flavored chocolate.
    All are worth trying. And they let you. Free samples are the lure.
    Once you go once you have to go again.

    What to buy: I recommend the hand scooped chocolate bars. The art on the wrappers are really fun and the chocolate is fair trade and really good.

    What to pay: Depends on how much you like chocolate. Average is about 2 or 3 euros per

    Curiosity shop

    by joanj Written Aug 13, 2008

    Down a little cobbled street - of which I do not have a name- I came across this shop that sold curiosities, and found outside beautifully carved wooden chairs and rocking horses.

    The shop was crammed with all sorts of objects to buy, but did resist.

    What to buy: Whatever takes your eye!

    What to pay: whatever you can afford

    My grandmother did some shopping while I was taking the salt mine trip. She wrote to my mom as we were leaving

    BB has expressed great enthusiasm over making a dirndl (with help) so we bought a pattern & some material for her & Debbie - Hope she is as enthusiastic when she's home!.

    What to buy: I (DEB) did a little shopping while the men rested in the hotel. This is the only picture I have of that.

    Linzergasse: Shop where locals shop

    by german_eagle Written Apr 20, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I found plenty of nice shops along this street in the New Town (pedestrian zone). It is fun to stroll along and watch the locals. Or to enter a shop and peek around. Or to have a break in a cafe.

    What to buy: Local craft and art are good ideas. Or pastries. It's not as expensive as in the Old Town and of good quality.

    Easter: Eggs eggs eggs

    by clouds111 Updated May 28, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This shop was unbelievable and you must come here. Have you ever painted an egg when you were at school or with your kids? Now imagine that a million times over at that is what you'll find in this shop. Christmas eggs, halloween eggs, easter eggs and they are beautifully hand blown and crafted.

    What to buy: EGGS

    What to pay: They are various prices depending on how intricate they but are around €6-12

    Souvenir shops all over Salzburg: Buy something to remember Salzburg by...

    by dongix Updated Mar 4, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Souvenir shops scattered everywhere in Salzburg - Old Town or otherwise.

    What to buy: Mini Mozart busts, miniature violins, anything embellished with Mozart's portrait, beer mugs, miniature cuckoo clocks... The list goes on.

    Some may call them cute others may call them tacky. But there's no denying that you can't leave the city without buying any of these mementos.

    Miniature violins are my favorite and I bought one for my quirky boss a battery operated viloin (13 Euros) that actually work - pre programmed of course but it does the trick - he liked it a lot.

    Remember the red mozartsweets? There's no souvenir shop in Salzburg without them.

    What to pay: Depending on the item, but mostly cheap.

    Salzburg Marionette Theatre: Bring the marionettes home...

    by dongix Updated Mar 4, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Seeing a performance of the Salzburg Marionettes is a good idea or even a must. Buying a video of the Marionettes in action is also a good idea and makes for a nice souvenir too.

    What to buy: You can buy videos the from the Salzburg Marionette Theatre or at the Salzburg Marionette Museum located in the Fortress.

    Videos are available in either DVD or VHS format (or both) and comes in three different language - English, German and French.

    I bought the Nutcracker for 25 Euros. It didn't come in DVD (which I think will cost 27 Euros).

    If you want to splurge you can buy a 40 cm tall, fully workable marionette Papageno from "The Magic Flute", handmade in the studios of the Theatre (limited edition 500 pieces) for 250 Euros.

    What to pay: 25 Euros for videos

    Billa: For those necessities that shouldn't be expensive

    by dongix Updated Mar 4, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you stay longer in Salzburg and need to buy things in normal prices, this is the place.

    What to buy: Everything you can buy in a grocery store. They even sell decent and tasty cooked food.

    One tip: Their plastic shopping bags are not free. You are usually charged .30 to .60 Euro cents. Not expensive but unnecessary especially for those who are not used to this kind of set up. You can bring your own shopping bag if you want.

    What to pay: Normal grocery prices.

    Eggs Galore!

    by AnnS Written Dec 11, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Walking through the streets one night I came upon the most wonderful window displays of literally THOUSANDS of painted eggs. Returning the next day, I discovered that they were blown hens' eggs and the designs covered every event imaginable... from Christmas and Easter to birthdays and christenings.

    I didn't buy any but people who were, were getting them packed in traditional egg boxes and if you decided to risk possible damage in transit, they would make lovely souvenirs.

    But whether you buy or not, it's worth looking at all the lovely designs.

    The Easter Store: Easter Eggs throughout the year

    by christine.j Written Aug 10, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have seen some Christmas stores where you can buy Christmas ornaments all year round, but this was the first Easter store I saw. They must be thousands of eggs on display there, with all kinds of colouring and paintings on them. Some looked like strawberries, others like ducks, yet others like a halloween pumpkin. There were some which were painted like an old globe.
    The store is not too big, so you're almost afraid to move for fear that you might bump into the eggs.It's not the place I would like to take small kids to.
    These eggs make very nice gifts. Prices start at about 4 Euro and go up to more than ten. The eggs are wrapped very well and none of ours broke on our way back home.

    And there is a Christmas Store just across the street,too.
