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.

  • It is a very large well-kept Cathedral. Well framed their baroque bows. Silent calling attention that there was a dog at mass also

  • Baroque architecture at its finest. There is a lot of detail inside the church, from ceilings to walls to windows. Definitely visit if time permits plus entry is free.
  • Lovely details inside the building and if you are lucky to hear a choir singing you will enjoy their sound greatly in this space.
  • The Cathedral is very near to Hohensalzburg Castle. So, an ideal Salzburg itinerary should start from the Castle and the Cathedral should be the second stop. A major attraction is the Mozart's baptismal font. The church architecture itself is magnificent. Suggested duration to spend is 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Beautiful cathedral that stands out in the middle of city. Its especially gorgeous if you view it from the fortress and also it's very nice during night time.
  • Incredibly ornate church with an amazing ceiling and architecture. Very imposing scale for the building and filled with the finest of artwork and craftsmanship. Definitely a visit when in the city.
