We visited here on our first day in Saltzburg and it was a good choice except for the steps. My husband was having problems with his knee and this made things difficult for him. Not sure if there is a lift as we didn't come across one at all. Overall, though it was excellent with plenty to see and enjoy.

The entire Residenz tour which includes the cathedral, the Dom, is very large and the audio tour can be very long. Don't be embarrassed to skip some of the extra segments which go into great detail. Plan on 2+ hours. The only downside is the audio guide stops after the organ balcony of the Dom, entering from the Residenz. It... More

Fascinating walking through and admiring the lavish decorations and expensive furniture. Please note you are not allowed to take photos. The journey starts through the religious part of the building showing crosses and other religious stuff. it then gets more interesting as you walk around the corridors and rooms that the owner Archbishops would had walked through. The size of... More

The Residenzgalerie tickets includes a number of different parts- from the historic residence, state rooms, art gallery and cathedral. It also had a balcony with a great view of the city centre. Exhibits were very well designed and the audio tour was informative (but you can skip some of it if you are short on time or not interested in... More

It was the highlight in my recent visit in Salzburg. The Residenz has so many things to see, that can be a little bit overwhelming. The audio guide tells you a little bit of history for each one of the rooms but it takes 3 long minutes each time you press the button. If you do not skip some of... More

Central location and good audio guide to make the tour very interesting. Not very grand rooms and yet there are some interesting exhibits. May not interest younger children as much.

The entire residenz museum (including the dom) is huge, so if you want to see all of it, I would plan on spending at least 2.5 hours here! The entire area is beautiful and I enjoyed the information from the audio guides!

I feel that a visit to this archbishop's residenz doesn't leave much information in my head after the trip. It is pleasant, but very moderate as most of the information given by audioguide are quite 'dry' - not interesting and i feel quite bored towards the end.

We really enjoyed this attraction. We visited on May 1, which is a national holiday in Austria; fortunately, this was open. It's our habit to be one of the first in line at the opening time so that we don't get mixed up with tours and school outings. This was wise at the Residence. We really appreciated the self-guided tour.... More
