I always spend a short visit to cathedrals and churches. Always a moment of contemplation. At the same time, I enjoy the architecture of this cathedral.
I have been traveling around Bavaria for about a week, and have seen a number of gorgeous churches. During my trip across the border into Salzburg, I paid this stunning cathedral a visit. It is the only one of the many I have seen over the last several days that made me gasp as I walked through its doors. Don't... More
We've seen several Catherdrals in Europe. They all seem different in their own way. This one did not disappoint. It was beautiful and the crypts were interesting, too. I seem to remember that there was no admission fee so I recommend stopping in and experiencing it.
I've been fortunate enough to visit Salzburg on two occasions but not been inside the Dom. This trip I lost count of the number of times I walked past this grand cathedral, but it seemed to be rarely open. My last day and much to my surprise it was open.

What I Liked: from afar, before you enter, the facade looks grand & majestic! the interiors look far superior than the exteriors. What I Disliked: I did not have any local guide thus I read off the tour notes from the Internet instead. Yes or No? Yes because of its long history.
Really imposing cathedral. Be sure to regard closely the fixtures on the ceilings of cherubs - just magnificent. I really liked the use of red and the frescoes of course.

We visited during the Christmas season. This Cathedral is in the center of the old town and was surrounded by the Christmas Markets. It is pretty inside but does not compare to the Abbey at Melk or the Dom in Passau. It is worth a look when in this quaint town.
A stunning and awesome place! Easily accessible from the Old Town do not miss this gem of Baroque architecture. The Cathedral dominates the old town skyline and the interior does not disappoint.
This cathedral in the center of Salzburg's old town is a classic example of baroque architecture with it's high dome and ornate wood carved organ sat above the center of the building on the left hand side as you walk in entrance. Not a large Cathedral but still beautiful and worth spending a little time exploring.
