Salzburg Cathedral (Dom), Salzburg

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.

  • Fled the rain outside we end up in a totally different world. What a great beautiful baroque Cathedral. You get almost a stiff neck it up looking at all the beautiful ceiling paintings that are still very well preserved. The crypt is also impressive.

  • The cathedral is lovely with some great architecture and brilliant ceilings. It was quite dark though. Interesting to see the font where Mozart was baptised.  more »

  • It is very beautiful. The interiors are full of carvings and statues on the domes are breathtaking. Must visit. Got a chance to hear a choir practcing and the experience was more than complete!
  • This church is fantastic and one of the best I've been to in Europe with interesting catacombs too.
  • This is located south east of the town center. It's just outside of old town. It is not in the center as some have suggested. It's really nice on the inside and outside. You definitely should walk all the way around it and see the buildings that surround it. The inside is incredible too. Not to make light of the amazing art on the walls and ceilings, but with modern technology, I don't know why churches don't use 3D printers to emulate this kind of art.
  • Beautiful cathedral outside the main centre of the city, but well worth seeing. Lovely inside and out. Magnificent architecture
  • Superb church.. the interiors are intricately designed.

Where to stay in Salzburg

There’s no better area to stay in the city where Mozart was born than the historical city center, a World Heritage Site. Salzburg's hub offers comfortable accommodations nestled between a rich array of sights. The Salzach River cuts directly through town, dividing the city into east and west. Look for accommodations in the Altstadt, tucked in between the river and the city’s mountain, Monchsberg. For budget-minded travelers, try a centrally located youth hostel or small hotel. If price isn’t an issue, splurge on Austrian luxury in an upscale hotel.
