Hugely imposing, impressive and spectacular cathedral, both inside and out. Viewed from the fortress it dominates Salzburg old town and the dome is particularly impressive. The interior houses some truly spectacular frescos and ceiling artwork. A must-see on any visit to Salzburg.

Free admission with donations accepted, beautiful art and baroque architecture inside that is worth seeing. Look up at the ceilings frequently, they are quite remarkable. One of the most interesting parts of the Altstadt.

the dome has been so well rebuilt, you'd never know it was destroyed in WWII. Take time to sit and admire the many frescos.v

The cathedral is definitely impressive, but it's worth bearing in mind that Salzburg has so many worthwhile churches, it can get a little disorientating to just keep going from one to another. This one is probably the best, the inside is cavernous and grand, the square outside is stark and opulent, so it's worth devoting an hour to stroll around.... More

This imposing Baroque-style cathedral is a must see when visiting Salzburg. There was a small but interesting open-air market on the adjacent courtyards on the days we visited.

This is a lovely example of a Cathedral. It is an easy walk from pedestrian area. If you are spending the day, add this to your itinerary.

The cathedral is a beautiful place. Full of history, even though was almost gone durin the war. But, this is not the church where the real Von Trapps got married.

This is a beautiful and enormous cathedral, but I thought there were several other churches in the old town that were better. Make a point to see this one but quickly move on to the others.

The church has beautiful architecture and historic feeling. Worth visiting this in Salzburg. All the squares in the city are very good and fun to visit..

Few cathedrals can be found like this one. I have visited a lot this is one of my favourites. The painted walls, the sculptures and the corridors are very well decorated and above all conservated
