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.

ヨーロッパの大聖堂はどこも素晴らしいのですが、こちらはその中でもかなり大好きな場所です。 そして、パイプオルガンの演奏もあるとのことですが、今回は聞くことができませんでした。 ここで、モーツァルトも弾いていたそうです。 more »The cathedrals in Europe are wonderful, but this is one of my favorite places. And, it was not able to be heard this time though there was a pipe organ performance, too. Mozart was also playing here.
Lovely cathedral, the architecture is astounding. Free to enter, make sure to take off your hat (there's a sign that says not hats allowed)! Not sure if it's usually the case, but it wasn't crowded at all when I visited (Thursday 6pm, rainy day).
Loved visiting for the 10:00 Sunday mass. Spectacular music. Beautiful building: dark at the back as you walk through the Lord's passion and flooded with natural light at the front to ficus on the joy of His resurrection and ascension!
