In the heart of Old Town. At least take a quick walk through ( it is by donation) .... like most old churches the architecture is art in and of itself. Can do this in as little as 30 minutes.

Salzburger Dom is a very beautiful baroque cathedral that you should definitely enter while in town. It is located between the Hohensalzburg Fortress and the Salzach River. Facing the main door of the Cathedral, you'll have the Fortress to your right and the horse-drawn carriages to your left. Though the statue in the Domplatz is covered with a container made... More

large impressive cathedral in heart of old city. Pales in comparison to Milan. Nonetheless, the ceilings are amazing and the decor is impressive. It was dark inside and the front is blocked by holiday shoppes and Xmas trees. No charge for admission but donations requested upon exit.

We took a break from the Christmas market and went inside the cathedral (donation is optional at entrance or exit) to look at the dark but impressive church. We visited the crypts and just had a quiet time in prayer before going out again to join the Christmas festivities.

The Cathedral is an amazing church. Free admission. The inside is breathtaking. The ceilings are very impressive and beautiful. located right in the heart of old town, easy to find. The entrance to the Fortress is right behind the Cathedral.

This is one of the most beautiful European cathedrals with close connections to the Mozart family and to Michael Haydn. However, what I resent is being forced to pay an entrance fee when all the other beautiful churches in Salzburg just request a donation.

When I first walked in, I felt welcome. I don't know how such a large space can feel so cozy and inviting, but it does. Maybe it was the lighting. The ceilings soar above and a soft light bathes the murals while tons of candles illuminate the chapels to the right and left. I genuinely liked this church and ended... More
