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

I am giving this place only an average review due to the fact that the audioguides were not available (they did not work). The guy behind the glass made it VERY clear we were too early and to come back at 9 and then there was no audioguide. Admission is covered with the Salzburger card (you can get it at... More

Where else can you see wall coverings hung in 1775 still beautifully intact? The self-guided tour is well done. If the details in a specific room become more than you want to learn, just move on to the next. The Card covers most of the main attractions in town and bus fare. We thought it a good deal.

Beautiful old palace with a fascinating history. They also have a small art collection with a work by Rembrandt. They make you put your bags in a locker that costs three Euro but they give it back to you when you leave.

We really enjoyed both the audio guided tour and the gallery on the upper level. The audio guide was of a high quality, providing fascinating insight into the building's life.

Well preserved palace. Don't visit without getting the audio guide. A visit to the gallery upstairs is also a must once you're there. Both are free with the Salzburg Card.

The audio guide is a must when visiting the Residenz. It's an amazing place, very well preserved and presented. A lovely insight into the history of Salzburg (e.g. seeing the room where Mozart gave his first performance). I had the Salzburg Card, so there was no fee!

The audio tour at the Residence really made it interesting and worthwhile. We enjoyed all the information and looking at the amazing marble and parquet floors. It's unbelievable how well everything has been preserved. Well worth an hour or two of your time in Salzburg.
