17th century baroque cathedral is one of the most important churches of Salzburg. Seen from the upper level in front of the organs (Residenz tours goes that way) looks very impressive and not overloaded with ornamentation. Colours are subdued making it look austere. I like that. The whole structure is huge - take a look especially at the cupola and... More

The old town of Salzburg is a delight but step out from the narrow streets and alleys and the cathedral is a stunning sight from the outside set in an open square. The interior is fantastic and we were lucky enough to be a part of an audience listening to a choir from the USA, the acoustics were brilliant and... More

The most impressive feature of the Cathedral is the height of the ceilings, they were so high and were painted with baroque murals and were surrounded by impressive stucco work. A truly magnificent Cathedral.

Visited cathedral during a guided tour of the Old Town, it was a quick visit but made you appreciate the cathedral none the less, artistic ceilings, and artwork. I would say about two hours are needed to fully understand the history and appreciate the cathedral.

One can experience the vast complex of the Dom in a lovely audio guide tour through its respective parts. This complex was built up over the course of a few hundred years, and it's interesting to learn the motives behind that. Beautifully preserved, it is perhaps just as beautiful as when the various Prince Archbishops lived there.

Impressive on the inside and out. It is not my favorite cathedral, but it is no less worth a visit. There was a organ performance you could attend from 12-1300.

Yes, Europe is full of castles and cathedrals. I never tire of going into these magnificent buildings--physical reminders of a historic past in a very different time and circumstance from ours. This cathedral is part of a crown of a collection of buildings in the town center. You need to be here to soak up the atmosphere.
