“Perhaps more impressive from the Outside ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

The cathedral was unfortunately bombed during WWII, and the subsequent restoration transformed it into an engaging whitish church building which--in my opinion--is more attractive on the outside when you consider that the entrance portion serves as a backdrop to the Salzburg Everyman play/Jedermann.

“Very moving experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Cathedral was damaged during World War II and was restored only in 1959. Impressive architecture! We attended the morning Mass. Beautiful organ music. Very peaceful.

“Beautiful but typical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Is Maria somewhere around here? What a beautiful Cathedral. We have seen many but they still take your breath away when you walk through the doors to view the massive ceilings and gold adornments to every wall. Fantastic.

“magnificent and cold..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Well, it is an imopsing place--we only peeked in from the outside , there was such an icy blast on this lovely Spring day, we didn't "do" the Dom. What we saw was imposing. If you're Christian, you'll be duly impressed by your faith's involvement with power. The Art we saw was worth a real visit to see closely , maybe in August, when the cool will be appreciated.
