"Dome Cathedral" Cathedral Tip by easterntrekker

Cathedral, Salzburg: 97 reviews and 166 photos


The first Salzburg Dom was recorded in 774. We thought this was a good place to start our self guided tour. With its ancient paintings and artifacts this is a museum in itself! There are three dates above the doors starting at 696, when the original church was built. The highlight of the cathedral is the 71 meter high dome.Two rows of eight frescos each, display scenes from the Old Testament. The dome was destroyed during WW11 but restored in 1959.

Directions: In the heart of the Old City - you can see the steeples from all over Salzburg
