On the right bank of the Salzach River, this narrow, cobbled lane was, incredibly, the main trade route to Italy in medieval times. Look out for the 13th-century Steintor gate and the house of Joseph Mohr , who wrote the lyrics to that all-time classic of a carol ‘Silent Night’. The street is at its most photogenic in the late morning when sunlight illuminates its pastel-coloured townhouses.
