About Salzburg Cathedral, Salzburg

With an imposing façade, looming over the city, the Salzburg Cathedral is a famous monument, known for its magnificent 4000 pipe organ, gorgeous Baroque styled architecture and being the church where Mozart was baptized. It is located where the Residenzplatz flows into the city. The church is dedicated to the Saints Rupert and Vergilius.

This spot has been host to a church since 774, with numerous renovations in the history of its existence. The Romaneque cathedral that was located there earlier was destroyed in a fire in 1598 and a new, grander cathedral was built in its place. Designed by the famous architect Santino Solari, the cathedral was consecrated in 1628.

The cathedral is very striking visually. Its grand and majestic exterior houses an even grander interior. It’s marble façade, green topped twin towers and large green-roofed dome create a splendid sight.  There are bronze doors, with work that highlights the themes of Love, Faith and Hope. The plaza of the cathedral is a beautiful urban piece, with a statue of the Virgin Mary rising in the center. Walking in, you will be greeted by a peaceful combination of sepia and white, with the church full of intricate and elaborate murals. There are fixtures of cherubs on the ceiling and stunning art on the frescoes too.

The church is famous for playing an important role in the life of Mozart. A point of interest is the Romanesque font at which the great composer was baptized. The walls of the church almost reverberate with beautiful music as he served here as an organist and some of his greatest compositions were written for this very cathedral. Many of these pieces were performed here for the first time as well.

An exhibition of excavation work is yet another point of interest, with ruins of the original foundation of this structure on display. There’s also an exhibition of arts and wonders displayed in the Dom Museum, which you can enter through the cathedral.

You can light a candle in the cathedral, attend mass or just contemplate within the tranquil confines of this famous building. Its gorgeous exterior and serene interiors attract a number of people regularly. Whether you want to pray or just visit, the Salzburg Cathedral is another gem in the treasure chest of Salzburg.
