Went to mass here and had a lovely youth choir. Decor is absolutely fabulous. Lovely just to wander through in peace.

The intricate work on the walls, columns and roof are stunning. While at first glance it looks like any other "smaller" cathedral in Europe, it definitely starts to impress as we look closer. Considering it is free of charge (just any donation is accepted), this is well worth the visit. Photos are allowed.

Salzburg's Dom is the city's magnificent piece of church architecture . Gorgeous façade and mighty dome it represents the most impressive early Baroque architecture. Mozart was Baptized here. Seen one of the best plays " Jederman " before this beautiful church setting . An unforgettable Theatrical Experience.

The cathedral is eally big and richly decorated, but it is a typical exmple of this architecture. I wouldn't say that it has any memorable features.

There was a rehearsal in the cathedral during our visit. Unfortunately, we didn't explore much of the interior due to that but got to enjoy some free music as a trade off.

Salzburg Cathedral was breathtaking with amazing details on the ceiling and in the alcoves. This is definitely worth seeing!

Sunday's high mass at 10 am has a wonderful music performance with orchestra and choirs. It was very moving. Recommend getting there at least 20 minutes early because it can get crowded.

This church is a typical for this country, really nice, the paintings are really catching, so you may end with neck pains.

We were lucky to stumble in on a rainy day to the voices of a girls choir. The choir was outstanding. The whole ambiance of the church was holy, glorious, and overall breathtaking. Be sure to take the time to view all of the ceiling paintings. They tell the story of the death of Jesus quite clearly.
