Christmas Mass at the cathedral was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. They had multiple trained choirs, an orchestra, and professional opera singers perform various Christmas hymns. They ended with an arrangement of "Silent Night" (which the town is famous for) that took my breath away. If you are there during the Christmas season, you have to... More

This cathedral is wonderful and our guide Naomi Mogil really provided us with some wonderful details about the history of it. We were quite impressed with the organs the cathedral had in addition to the wonderful dome. It was a great place to just stop, relax, rest our feet and enjoy the beauty and quite inside, away from the Christmas... More

Stunning- an absolute must-see for anyone interested in architecture or art. This cathedral is classically beautiful; every part of it is gorgeous.

While there are many bigger cathedrals in Europe, I think the Salzburg Cathedral's interiors is probalby one of the most beautiful I have seen in Europe. It is not overpowering so you are able to appreciate the beauty and symmetry of design put into every structure.

We loved the fact how all the Cathedrals and Churches in the region had such easy walk-ins for tourists at any hour. We simply walked into the Dom during evening hours and were awestruck admiring the beauty of the ornate ceilings, the paintings on the celings, the carvings. Absolutely stunning - a must do. Expect to spend 20 minutes or... More

Classic baroque architecture . Over the top but befits the period of its origin. Beautiful little altars and religious stations around the knave of the church.

I have visited many cathedrals in France and the U.S. including Notre Dame and St. Patrick's and this cathedral is far and above those or any other I have seen. If there had been stain glass windows I may have never left. It looks a bit newer and apparently it was partially destroyed in WWII but the detail of the... More

It's centrally located and beautiful. This church is so beautiful that I feel like a real heel saying that St. Peter's Abbey close by is even more beautiful inside, but you owe it to yourself to see both and see what you think. The reason I feel like a heel saying this is because this place is so grand and... More

Locally this is referred to as the Dom (Domkirche St. Rupert). Salzburg Cathedral is magnificent, probably the prettiest in any German speaking country. It was dedicated in the 17th century to two saints Rupert and Vergilius. This magnificent church has been a work in progress since the 700's. Look for the Domplatz on your map. It is located close to... More
