Quiet yet beautifully decorated. We enjoyed visiting the cathedral and St. Peters Church/Graveyard/Catacombs. Recommended.

A several hundreds of years old Monument, this Cathedral has been through the best and worst of times. It is a very well restored and preserved building with magnificent artifacts inside. It is probably the biggest building within the old town of Salzburg, so do not miss this while you are strolling around the area.

Attend a religious ceremony, you will have a good Chance to see the arch Bishop. Have a look at all the rich Details in "Barock" architecture and interior design When you Exit the main entranse, stop at the first step for a Moment and imagine you were an actor of the famous classical Play of the summer Festival "Jedermann"

Beautiful architecture, just stunning to look at. Just like most cathedrals to be honest, but still worth a look and a wander round.

If you appreciate any artwork then thus is a must see place, it has some wonderful scenes from the bible painted everywhere and they are amazing. It's really hard to miss the tombs and underground prayer room make you turn to the left when in the central spire and go down the stairs. There some of Austrians most honoured cardinals... More

The Dom is the largest church in Salzburg and is only challenged by St. Peter's in ornate artwork. There are four organs mounted to the four central pillars in the center of the chapel which also hold up the dome. If you enjoy religious art the Dom is not to missed...
