Running along the Salzach River, between the Imbergstrabe and the Kapuzinerberg, this street of cute pastel colored houses was once part of a major thoroughfare and trade route, especially in the salt trade. It was the street for working class people - potters, butchers and brothel-workers. Look to the south side of the gate, and you’ll find the remnants of the old 13th century structure known as Aubere Steintor, built specifically to protect the street. The street is also the location of the house of Joseph Mohr, who wrote the eternal Christmas hymn, ‘Silent Night’, in No. 31. In the street you’ll also find some cute bars, an indie cinema, and bookstores. If you see the houses with red lamps outside, those are the city’s brothels.
