Whether you're religious or not you must visit this famous cathedral which is not too far from the heart of Salzburg. While it's a historical buliding it's in a very good condition both outside and inside, even the paintings, too.

A beautiful cathedral, lovely and cool respite from a hot humid summer day. Lovely gothic architecture and gold leaf decoration. A must for Catholics. This is in the heart of the market place, market open Thursday have a look at all the lovely produce from fruit and veg, cheeses, bread pastries and meats, as well as flower and plant stalls,...

The cathedral is well worth seeing on a visit to Salzburg, with its beautiful dome and its many altars and paintings - full of history. In spite of the crowds it's a peaceful place.

Such a stunning place. It was very busy the day we visited but even so very impressive. The ceilings are beautifully painted, we just wanted to walk round looking upwards!

If you happen to walk bye, just take a look inside. Its not the greatest Church in the World, but its okej. Dont forget to look down into the catacombs.

This dome church is a seventeenth century baroque cathedral located in the old town. The west façade facing the Domplatz stands the Maria Immaculate Column. From the north façade you can see the Residenzplatz fountain, from Hohensalzburg fortress you can have a birds eye view of the south façade and the two towers, the big dome. That is a beauty...

While not the most beautiful or richly decorated church I've seen, the Salzburg Cathedral is pretty inside and is definitely worth a quick look at least. The painted dome is quite impressive, by far the best part of the cathedral.

Salzburg Cathedral is a busy cathedral in the middle of the old town. It is still operational and you can see it has been renovated in modern times. The crypts are quite strange and very Gothic. One thing it does do is take your breath away with size and stature. Made to impress and it certainly does.

Although I am not following any religion, I was thrilled to see interiors as well as exteriors. This is the taste of history that Salzburg is proud of.
