If your going to Salzburg, its a must see attraction, sort of, however, I’m really at a lost for all attractions in Salzburg. Its a must see if your there, but i wouldn't go Salzburg, to specifically visit this site.

This exclusive state-owned Art Gallery shows works by Rembrandt, Saraceni, Hieronymus, etc. However, the most important stock of paintings was purchased between 1956 and 1991 from the former Czernin Collection in Vienna. A guide is highly recommended.

We visited the Residence with our combination ticket, so it was a very good value. We used the audio guides but walked at a steady pace throughout. It still took over an hour. No photos were allowed.
