An essential place to see while in Salzburg

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.

Though it is not the most impressive cathedral, or the most beautiful or the biggest I have seen in my life, I keep a vivid memory of Salzbourg cathedral as it is really different from all the other I have seen. The dominant colours (white, black and orange) are really uncommon and give a different feeling to this building.

this residence is fantastic with lots to see. It is furnished beautifully and I think with original furnishings. It was covered with Salzburg pass (a great deal). I would consider this a must see if you have the time. We attended mass in the cathedral first and although we could not understand it still the music was great. for more... More

Not as impressive as other cathedrals in Austria but the interior is nice and the crypt is worth the visit. We were lucky to see and ear a chorus practicing some religious baroque music. It was awsome !!

This is a beautiful cathedral with attractive frescoes. The cathedral itself is an imposing structure with its mighty dome and imposing façade. The pulpit is equally imposing. If you have time, a visit to the cathedral museum is a must.

Beautiful cathedral that you have to see even if you are in town for 2-3 hours. For people with limited time I would recommed Rick Stevens audiogude that gives you discription of this cathedral in few minutes. You can download it on you iphone.

This cathedral is a large, imposing baroque structure. You can admire the frescoes, the several organs, or simply the magnitude of the cupolas. Go early in the day. It gets overrun by tourist groups later!

We visited Salzburg at the end of a trip to several European cities so by this point we were getting a little numb to the grandeur of a lot of the stunning architecture. Salzburg Cathedral sticks in the mind because of its massive scale and the way that you are free to explore all around which has not always been... More

It closes promptly at 17:00, so be ready to leave at 17:01! The exterior was jammed with temporary stages and seating during the Music Festival, but the interior of the church is beautiful. We were thrilled someone was practicing one of the organs. . .I can't imagine how all four must sound together!
