Beautiful and provides perspective on Salzburg

Check out the proclivities and predilections of clerics and nobility in charge for 100s of years. Not as grand as Munich, but still interesting.

It’s an imposing group of buildings forming a whole which is said to have been built from 1595 onwards on prince-archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau’s initiative albeit, in fact, only the present appearance can be ascribable to him inasmuch as a palace was already in the same place before, whose construction began under Archbishop Konrad I in the thirteenth century....

It is a great opportunity to see this building from inside and get an idea of how the royals used to live. If you like history, then you will need a good amount of time to go through all the rooms and the gallaries.

We visited the museum but were disappointed that the state rooms were closed, the rest of the museum and galleries were ok but could not really compensate. The museum was also very cold, the room attendants were well wrapped up.

This is an amazing building, very elaborate and full of history. The pictures speak for themselves but not like being in the building. The room and corridors full of art, some original furniture and immaculately kept. There's an audio tour which is very good. Fascinating place, highly recommended.

You need a lot of time and patience. Place is huge. Yes, it is museum but at the same time you will see and walk through original interiors. Original rooms, paving, windows, doors, stucco work, frescoes pictures furniture. From time to time you will have some special views to the cathedral to the open spaces. You can’t miss that it...

Quite spectacular is the only way to describe the Residenz and I felt quite grateful to be able to see it. It definitely doesn't have the in-your-face opulence of Versailles, but it is well worth seeing.

We attended a Gala Dinner here at the end of a conference. Food a bit so-so but they were catering for huge numbers.

Home of the Archbishop, it rivals any palace. Full of art - massive paintings on the ceilings and grand staiways. Entry is €10, Free with Salzburg card. Budget 1.5 hours to see it all. Photography is prohibited in most areas.
