Salzburg Cathedral (Dom), Salzburg

(4.6/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
The site of religious worship for centuries, Salzburg Cathedral (Dom) 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. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Salzburg holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Salzburg Cathedral (Dom) and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Must see in Salzburg, this Cathedral you'll catch right away with its grandeur and beauty. With that high, you feel taken and projected into infinity. Nose up and let yourself be enchanted by the paintings.

  • Summer afternoon city walk while coming up the dome and found "the Dome Concert announcements. We have already begun opening hours could buy tickets at the ticket booth near the dome entrance. Fee structure is close to the performer's forward and rear seats hard to see two. It is a Coronation mass concerts of Mozart by the local Orchestra and singers and Organists. Performance level was very high what much more than the "tourist". Singer and violin soloist who appeared in the balcony pipe organ protruding from the second half of the concert, on both sides of the altar are placed. You could look from rear-seat block of soloists of the balcony appearance. If the timing is good, in the dome of Mozart Agnus Dei Krönungsmesse beautifully echoes the Agnus Dei, soprano and Orchestra Mozart's Coronation mass to hear happy! To meet the.

  • A nice stroll if you would like to have a view of what is inside the cathedral. Very nice architecture if you ask me so if you have the salzburg card, why not just pay it a visit.
  • This is my favorite Cathedral. It's not overdone or too ornate. Its also not usually crowded so it's nice to walk in off of the streets if there are throngs of tourists outside. There's no charge for tickets to enter but be sure to bring a few euro to donate to the cathedral. There are English services in Sunday so if you're Christian it's worth looking up the times because I'm sure the mass in the cathedral is wonderful.
  • On the way back home from Switzerland the most stunning thing for me was that we didn't have to pay admission fee. :P
  • It is nice you can visit a large part of the Dom, also the cellars, for free.
  • The Salzburg Cathedral is hard to miss. In the centre of the historic town, its spires rise above almost everything else. It’s free to go inside the main part of the cathedral (although there’s a donation box) and you won’t be disappointed. Artwork fills the walls and the elaborately decorated chapels. The paintings on the ceiling are also very impressive.
