Great view!

Perfect view onto the city. Make sure to go up there at least once. Note that there is no elevator and you have to take the stairs.

This is not as ornate as many but just as beautiful with all the white carved marble inside. Another one to put on the list while strolling around the old town

Very different style than the Cathedral. Nice stone columns and interesting ceiling. It is dark in the entrance, but brighter in the back. Worth walking though for 30 minutes.

Saw many people going into this church on a Sunday morning. Followed them in and was surprised to find a Catholic mass beginning. The church is almost entirely of stone. Nothing ornate, just 5 columns of stone rising up to hold the roof. Very different from the ornate churches of Italy or even the USA. A rather plain, yet powerful... More

A magnificent church both outside and inside. The interior is just beautiful and there is plenty to see inside. At the time I went in, there was a big tour but they weren't being loud and I was able to find somewhere to sit and marvel at the beautiful interior. There is plenty to see within this one building and... More

We visited the magnificent church when in Salzburg for the day. It is very beautiful outside but inside is Spectacular. A stunningly beautiful interior and apparently not well known to the tour groups as it was practically deserted when we were there. I would heartily recommend visiting this treasure.

I have been in all the other cathedrals/churches in Salzburg over the many times visiting but somehow I missed this one, one of the oldest churches in Salzburg. Magnificent! Seems that the tour groups don't go here so you must! The ceiling is a true work of art in itself. I find this IS the church to go to in... More
