The Salzburg Cathedral is massive. It was completed in 1657 and is famous for its Italian style. The main nave, 32 meters high, has ceiling paintings by Donato Mascagni and Ignazio Solari. The high altar of 1628 is attributed in the design to the master builder of the cathedral Santino Solari. We took our time wandering around the cathedral and saw many beautiful things like the dome over the transept (it's 71 meters high). The crypt has some wonderful chapels and there's the baptismal font at the rear of the church were both Mozart and Joseph Mohr, the man who wrote the words for “Silent Night!", were baptized. Allow for ~1 hr for your visit.

When visiting Salzburg a visit to the Salzburg Cathedral is a must. It's free to enter and the Dommuseum can be visited for free with the Salzburg Card.
The history of the cathedral of Salzburg dates back all the way to 774, when the first basilica was completed. The current cathedral was built in 1691 and was designed by Vincenzo Scamozzi and Santino Solari. During World War II the 71-meter-high dome was hit by an aircraft bomb. The restoration was completed in 1959. Also good to know is that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was baptized here on January 28, 1756.

The Cathedral is beautiful and I recommend a visit highly. I especially enjoyed it from the viewpoint of its music history context. First, its 4,000 pipe organ is majestic. Second, Mozart was baptized here and later performed here. Add that to the beautiful interior of the dome and the intricate frescoes and you have worthy place to visit.
