The Residenzgalerie Salzburg is immense, but in all of the opulent rooms and long hallways there is no real masterpiece of Southern European Art. Not even the architecture is particularly impressive, but the size does give one an idea of how powerful the Church was...More

If your going to Salzburg, its a must see attraction, sort of, however, I’m really at a lost for all attractions in Salzburg. Its a must see if your there, but i wouldn't go Salzburg, to specifically visit this site.

This exclusive state-owned Art Gallery shows works by Rembrandt, Saraceni, Hieronymus, etc. However, the most important stock of paintings was purchased between 1956 and 1991 from the former Czernin Collection in Vienna. A guide is highly recommended.

We toured the Residenz and Domquartier while there was a rain storm. We were so glad we did. At the time we went there was hardly anyone there. So beautiful and interesting and well worth the time taken to tour the buidlings.

We visited the Residence with our combination ticket, so it was a very good value. We used the audio guides but walked at a steady pace throughout. It still took over an hour. No photos were allowed.

The palace rooms are an art work on their own and are an ideal setting for showcasing the art pieces. The Magnificent Hall has breathtaking ceiling frescoes and wall decorations. A wide selection of European art from the 1500s to the 1800s are displayed. All...More
