As we walked into the catherdral on a rainy summer weekday, the choir and organist began rehearsing. It was mesmerizing. I've visited many churches and cathedrals all over Europe, each with its own special beauty, charm and significance. This one just captured my attention. So glad we decided to pop it when we did.

I have seen a number of cathedrals in my day and have, in the past, felt I was starting to get jaded. But this cathedral is simply amazing. We were lucky enough to participate in a Mass and heard one of the massive organs being played. The arches and the artwork on them are just amazing, especially the stations of... More

It was pretty cool visiting this church while out & about, but even more amazing sitting under the dome,during a church service! Mozart played one of the organs in this lovely church, when he lived in Salzburg. The acoustic design of the church made the choir sound like angels...just lovely!

This was probably the best place that we visited on the saltzburg card. I have never visited such a stunning Cathedral and the Archbishops residences were unbelievable. How the other half lived. Very extravagant. Definately a must visit for anyone visiting Saltzburg

Should definitely be on your list of things to see while in Salzburg. We found it to be more impressive than other, larger, cathedrals we have seen elsewhere. It is in a great location to see along with several other sites closeby.

The 71 meter high dome dominates the church. Church also has two high bell towers. The church's interior is very beautifully decorated. It is very big and the most beautiful part of it is ceiling. It has a lot of nice paintings. It also has a beautiful big altar with a painting of Ascension of Jesus. In it's cellar there... More

Well worth a visit. Beautiful stonework, with exquisite decorations, statues and altars. The ornate decorations in the roof and stone carvings were lovely.

Ok, not to spend hours but when it is free, it is nice to go in.... Paintings look very realistic and 3D and this cathedral does look different than others. Going all the way to the front and looking up was worth it, but not worth going in the crypt underneath. Even gave donation on way out and was offered... More

to be honest after ten days of cathedrale hopping over eastern Europe I was burnt out oce I got here. It is nothing special but worth seeing since they all are. Go in and light a candle for a love one and be glad you are there to experience it. Some beggars outside but not like Paris.

One gets a little weary of cathedrals on a trip to Europe--but this one is truly special. Its white-washed interior, soaring architecture and stained glass are among the top 3-4 we've encountered in our travels across Europe (along with York Minster and cathedrals in Köln and Aachen). The newly opened 'residenz' museum promises to make the cathedral even more of... More
