This cathedral is beautiful inside and out. The center dome is spectacular with the white dove of peace and sunbursts of gold behind it. The frescoes/paintings are gorgeous!!!

The Cathedral is beautiful and provides a true place of introspection and prayer, even for those not Catholic, and it has such great history as well. if you can arrange it take the tour, there are several languages available, but it gives you a better understanding of the long history of the Church and its role in the region.

A must do when walking around Salzburg. The Cathedral is beautiful and free to go into. It is located in the old town and very accessible from anywhere in town.

The cathedral is amazing. We went on. Sunday and the choir and orchestra did a piece by Mozart. What a place to hear Mozart.

As with many of the great European 'Doms', this has a very ornate interior, but this does not detract from the sense of peace and tranquility you get. After all the noise of tourists outside it is good to find somewhere quiet to stop and think for a few minutes.

I spent about an hour staring at the awesome detail inside the magnficent church. The cherubs on the cellings and detailed flowery carvings were simply amazing! The DOM cathedral visit sort of leaves you in admiration of the devotion and utter determination that went into building the structure.

If you go to Salzburg you mut visit the "Salzburger Dom! Salzburg's Cathedral is probably the city's most significant piece of church architecture.
