“Baroque Masterpiece”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We attended a performance of Mozart's Coronation Mass, and it was fantastic. The TWO organs were spectacular, and the beautiful baroque interior just added to the thrill.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

The Salzburg Cathedral was beautiful and conveniently located for a quick stop (right in Old Town). In a city with fantastic architecture and other beautiful buildings it was a huge standout though. Inspite of that there is always something awe inspiring about the massive vaulted ceilings, and the Salzburg Cathedral is no exception. The connection to Mozart is also a draw

“Splendid Baroque Cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Salzburg Dom or Cathedral sits on the edge of the Residentsplatz and Domplatz ( where the main entrance sits ). A Wonderful statue sits in front of the main entrance named the immaculate Mary which when looked at from the far side of Domplatz gives an optical illusion that the Gold Crown above the main entrance is being lowered down on to Marys head the farther back you walk. The interior is typically Baroque, very bright with a multi coloured ceiling and the actual font where Mozart was baptised sitting in front of the main altar with the large painting of ' The Transfiguration ' scene of Christ as a back drop. Choral concerts are still very much in place here with the same Large Pipe Organ Mozart played as a youth still in operation. A must see. even if only for a few minutes.

“Magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

My wife and I like old cathedrals and this has got to be one of the best. Some we have been to are dark and dreary but this was bright and colorful and well worth the visit.
