The Salzburger Dom (Cathedral) is one of the finest Cathedrals in Austria. The dome itself is quite extraordinary. There are 7 organs positioned in various galleries, and the church has long been associated with antiphonal music from these various spaces (cori spezzati). This was home to Mozart before his relocation in Vienna, and his music is still regularly heard in... More

The Salzburg Cathedral has 5 pipe organs! This was "Mozart's cathedral." His parents were married there, he was baptized there, and much of his sacred music was composed for this cathedral. A must see for church musicians.

The church was of rather limited interest, not much to see and being renovated. It is of a good size though.

Stop and see the cathedral for sure! We were part of a choir group that was able to sing in the cathedral and the acoustics were amazing! The cathedral itself is beautiful. You can see the entire cathedral without a fee. (Some cathedrals allow free access but once you are in, there are gated areas that you have to pay... More

Such a splendid place! The architecture is admirable and on the Dom Quartier tour you get to see the place from behind the organ at the back of the Cathedral. Such an imposing structure! Its free but a small donation is recommended. Well worth it.

This cathedral is right in the heart of old town. It has 3 distinct sections that you can see from the outside that mark different construction and reconstruction periods. It is very large inside and picturesque.

A brilliant place to see and experience. The history attached to these types of places is enthralling. The Cathedral itself is grand and inviting.

The Salzburg cathedral is amazing to look at and is massive in size with paintings and other ornaments on the inside. I would recommend 25 minuets max if with kids as there is not much to do except sometimes there are exhibitions on in the cathedral. It is free to get in but other stuff including lighting a candle to... More
