“A wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

I love this church! I particularly love the selective use of colors, a splash of blue here and a bit of gold & red there. Nothing overwhelming, very cohesive. As you walk into each knave, it is finished in a way that creates a feeling that it could "stand alone"; a church within a church. A quiet place of worship within the larger, collective place of worship. I truly enjoyed this experience! Do not miss this when in Salzburg!

“Salzburg Cathedral Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I have made several trips to Salzburg over the years. One place I always visit is the Dom. It is awe inspiring. It has some of the most beautiful Baroque architecture I've seen. It's always a spiritual experience to visit there.

“A hearty welcome to one and all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

You've read the reviews and already know it's a lovely cathedral with stunning statues, paintings and of course the massive main organ with the four separate organs. Please take the time to visit this Cathedral. You will be amazed at the beautiful workmanship and hopefully will also be touched by the people who attend there regularly. We attended a Sunday service while visiting Salzburg and were treated with welcome and smiles. You get a tremendous amount of tourist visitors and sometimes it's nice to stop and thank the people who make our visits possible.

Thank you to the members of this church for your hospitality.

“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

The Dom(Cathedral) of Salzburg is a baroque masterpiece. You can see the font where Mozart was baptized and an organ he played. Attending a service there is a concert as well. The music is spectacular. The square in front of the cathedral becomes a theatre in August during the Festspiele.

“One of the nicest churches in Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

This amazing church is large with amazing works of art. Under the church is the graves of priests dating back to 1600. It is a must see so plan some time to actually look at the detail of each area.
