The cathedral has a splendid architecture but at the same time it is not overwhelming. It almost has a calming effect on you. When we visited, they were playing the piano and a woman was singing to the music. The entry is free but you can offer a donation to the cathedral while exiting (highly recommended!)

It was lovely to walk around. It is one of the most beautiful cathedrals I have been to. We sat there for a few minutes just looking up at all the art.

This Cathedral is the seventeenth-century Baroque Cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Salzburg dedicated to Saint Rupert and Saint Vergilius. It is the same church that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was baptized and it still contains the baptismal font.

Stopped in to look around while visiting Salzburg. The cathedral has 5 organs. Mozart played the organs here while growing up. We also saw his baptismal font. Very impressive cathedral. Worth stopping in for look.

Busy in the summer months. The selection of Baroque musical instruments was very interesting. Take the tram up and walk down. Wonderful to be where Leopoldo and Wolfgang Mozart worked. Beautiful interior. Worth going.

We walked through Salzburg on the evening we arrived. We stopped on the cathedral even though it was dark outside. The cathedral was open and had a comfortable darkness to it inside, but is lit sufficiently to see the interior.

Must see when in Salzburg. Close to other attractions. Not sure where they were from but a group of young people came in and started singing. It sounded wonderful. Donations appreciated.
