“Lovely Cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

The Salzburg Dom is a very bright and open cathedral. The detail in the statuary and ornate decor is amazing. We found this to be one of our favourites among the cathedrals we gave visited.

“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
