Salzburg Cathedral (Dom), Salzburg
(4.6/5 based on 2,400+ 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.

  • The highlights of this Salzburg Cathedral are to the dome and the organ or organs, since you have more than one. There's a picture of when it was destroyed in the second world war. It is impossible to visit without thinking about Mozart and his concerts.

  • The Cathedral is located in the historic centre of Salzburg, easy to reach. Inside, it's all worked out, but it's clean, without many excesses. Where Mozart was baptized.

  • The cathedral is huge and on a good location (right next to the square with the golden ball). Definitely worth to stop-by while visiting Altstadt :-)

  • 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.
