Yes, the cathedral was interesting if not perhaps one of the top 50 in Europe. What was particularly interesting was information on the five organs and close ups of the ceiling paintings. However, these are best seen when in Dom Quarter rather than the cathedral - the Dom Quarter walkthrough comes right past the main organ on the balcony and... More

The DOM in Salzburg is a beautiful church, as most here are....but huge and imposing. Easy to find.....just off the main square. Entrance is free, but there is a donation box. There is also a phone/listening device that costs about 1 EUR and you can listen to the history...well worth it.

There is no entrance fee to visit the cathedral (unlike some cities!!!) Interesting mixture of architectural styles. Not oppressively ornate and gives the feeling of being a very user friendly place of worship.

It's impressive to say the least. This is not a 5 minute stop. The ceiling... The details... The organ... The history... Well worth the time... I thought.

The Dom does not look like much from the outside (when compared to several other churches) but it is beautiful inside. The 4 church organs are impressive. The Sunday mass is famous for the music which is expected considering that it was Mozart's home church. When you stand facing the church, if you are at a suitable distance and angle... More

Grand building within the old town, beautifully painted and decorated. Its free to get in, although you can give a donation, definitely worth a visit.

We unexpectedly came across the Dom zu Salzburg as we wandered around the Old Town area. It is a magnificent looking building standing prominently over a square. The interior of the cathedral is as spectacular as the outside. Well worth a visit!

We took a stroll alongside the courtyards and square before deciding to come in - to the Residenz Salzburg. Passing through the rooms and corridors, we found ourselves in the Cathedral all of sudden. It was a small passage above the main entrance, just behind some statues with angels. - lovely and special to see it from a different perspectiveEven... More

we were able to wander alone and look at the art . There was a lower level with a beautiful silent prayer space. Take some time to escape the crowds and enjoy the quiet
