Salzburg Cathedral, Salzburg

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.

  • I can safely say that 1 day for me to this piece of heaven was not enough. I will definitely go back. The walk along Salzech river, beautiful cathedral, graveyard with catacombs, the beautiful castle and the oh so amazing one of the oldest Christmas Markets in Europe 😍
  • Absolutely beautiful. Amazing building. Went into the museum which led onto the oratory of the cathedral with the largest of the five organs. A must see!
