Create an itinerary including Salzburg Cathedral
The site of religious worship for centuries, Salzburg Cathedral still contains the same baptismal font in which Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was baptized. The Baroque cathedral as it stands today was rebuilt in the 17th century, but a church had existed in this same spot since 774. Inside, visit the cathedral museum to see religious treasures, such as the Cross of St. Rupert and the Sacred Dove. Continue to the Cabinet of Curiosities for an exhibit of natural objects and artwork. This exhibit connects to the Long Gallery of St. Peter's Abbey, a 70 m (230 ft) corridor lined with paintings. Make Salzburg Cathedral a centerpiece of your Salzburg vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Salzburg trip maker app.

  • We were on a tour of Salzburg focusing on the Christmas Market and opted not to pay the €5 to enter. However, this is certainly an impressive building from the outside.

  • The cathedral has to be one of the most impressive churches in Europe. We arrived just as an organ recital was ending, and the sound was fantastic.

  • Beautiful cathedral in the main square! Tickets are 5 euros for adults and free for kids up until age 18 years. The cathedral done is well decorated and beautiful. You also get to visit the krepes under ground in the church were priests and Cardinals are buried. The stone work is amazing. If you are in the neighborhood, make sure you visit St Peter's church because I thought the art work there was better than it was here. However, this cathedral is definitely worth the visit!
  • The noon organ concert was absolutely wonderful. The cathedral is exquisite, and you can buy your tix online to save waiting in line. Highly recommend!
