Salzburg Cathedral (Salzburger Dom) Reviews
Worth a stop when exploring Old Town Oct 16, 2010
Located in the Old Town of Salzburg, near the Mozartplatz, the Salzburg Cathedral is definitely worth a look inside the place.
When coming up to the entrance, there are 3 different numbers on the iron gates. They represent a different year, significant in the cathedral’s history. They are the following…
774 – when the previous church was built, long gone
1628 – when the current church was built
1959 – got rebuilt after being hit by a World War II bomb
Going inside, there is some church art, which are really nice to look. Some features to check out include the chapels, altar, and the organ in the upper back end. And the baptismal font, where Mozart was baptized.
Admission to the cathedral is free, though donations is requested! Still, definitely worth a stop when exploring the Old Town area.
