Though the the Church`s past history in the early christian period is not very clear,the church stands out as an amalgamation of various architectural styles from the romantic age to the present.One sees a slender Gothic church with large number of middle class followers.The church passed through many turbulent times of destruction & fire ravages but now essentially a work...

This church is an example of the Gothic structure. Its interior is better; especially the ceiling. However, I would rate it a bit lower than the Collegiate church which in my opinion surpasses all other churches in Salzburg. However, it is hard to me the Faransiscan church and it is worth the visit.

This is a Gothic cathedral...inside the decor has a much simpler design and is a welcome change from all the Baroque you are in Austria. The ceiling is definitely unique, and is the main attraction. It is worth a stop.

You are in Salzburg anyway, so drop in and see this church. It is notable for its surprising high decorated ceiling. Not too many tourists to spoil the atmosphere. So 10 minutes well spent for me.

We travelled from Vienna to Salzburg (on the very good train service) and were by this point in our itinerary starting to weary of yet another baroque church. It might be that being from the north of Europe we are simply more acclimatised to the Gothic style, but I was coming to the conclusion that one can have too much... More

The church was OK at least. If you only visit Salzburg on your Europe excursion then it might fascinate, but seeing so many churches already I do not think the church stands out. Some tour books say the church is special for "all the tall columns in it" but turns out there was only 4 - a real blunder. The... More

unlike the other churches that I visited while in Salzburg, this one felt more like an active place of worship instead of a tourist attraction. the ceiling is very cool. walking through takes maybe 5 min, but its a worthwhile 5 min

One of the very old churches in Salzburg Old Town. Less visited from the tourists, so you have more room to look around. It is connected to the cloister, where you cannot get in.

The massive stone columns, inside the church are quite impressive, & I actually liked the interior of this more than St.Peter's. If you go to Dom Quartier you can see the upper level through a glass door, not a great view but it gives you an idea of the massive size of the church. It is definitely worth taking a... More
