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.

This place is magical and stunning. My kids were also enchanted by all the details. On Christmas season it’s all decorated. I recommend to go during the evening with lights on, it gives another atmosphere. And I I remember well, we didn’t pay anything.
Very big, beautifully decorated. The inside is impressive. The entry is free, and the Temperature inside is nice and has many banks were you can sit and rest. Perfect place to spend a while on if the weather is bad.
