Salzburg Cathedral, Salzburg

The site of religious worship for centuries, Salzburg Cathedral still contains the same baptismal font in which Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was baptized. The Baroque cathedral as it stands today was rebuilt in the 17th century, but a church had existed in this same spot since 774. Inside, visit the cathedral museum to see religious treasures, such as the Cross of St. Rupert and the Sacred Dove. Continue to the Cabinet of Curiosities for an exhibit of natural objects and artwork. This exhibit connects to the Long Gallery of St. Peter's Abbey, a 70 m (230 ft) corridor lined with paintings.

  • The most beautiful cathedral that you will see in central Europe. Huge, very ornate, baroque style, the sheer size is humbling. Right smack in the middle of the old town. Visiting hours close at 18.00
  • Beautiful cathedral. Was there Easter Sunday and around 5:50 pm there was a wonderful period of ringing bells for about 10 minutes. Enjoyed the "concert" then went around the corner to hear the glockenspiel at 6.
  • Absolutely beautiful cathedral right in the center of the old town in Salzburg. Has a lot of life around it and also serves as an excellent landmark to help you direct yourself around the old town. Is a must see if youre nearby.
  • I was there walking around the city, and after the market I saw the cathedral is an impressive building very big and tall. The square were is located is beautiful. Inside the cathedral is beautiful. The paints are. Lovely You don’t have to pay but you can donate some money if you fee like it Recommend to go to the basement we’re are the tombs and special quiet places to pray only if you are religious
  • Stunning church. Unbelievable how they build it without modern machines. Lovely seats to enjoy the celling.
