This was the most beautiful of Salburg's churches that I saw. Its attraction comes as much from its setting as from the church itself. A fine square to the front, a perfect little cemetery to the rear. Outbuildings clinging to the mountainside. The whole set-up impossibly romantic.

Imposing building Christian world. Maybe not in size (although very large), but the spirit old time.

a must see - where mozarts sister is buried and a lot of history is tangible. visit the small bakery at the end of the cemetery direction to the dome - they have the most awesome sourdough bread imagineable.

A beautiful building - a haven of peace and quiet from the busy streets outside. Impressive paintings and carvings around the church and on the ceiling. I do wish people would respect the 'Silence' signs though - constant chatter can spoil the experience!

We stumbling upon the Cathedral and couldn't help but wander inside (for a small donation) and enjoy the peace and quiet and architectural and artistic pleasures of a very special place.

Very grand and beautiful inside. Even with so many tourists around there is very little sound - very peaceful. Worth the visit inside for sure!

The church is so beautiful inside. We especially enjoyed the cemetary outside. It is very well maintained with fresh beautiful flower displays and plants. A plus is to visit the catacombs within the cemetary. You can go inside for a very small fee.
