TIP!!! NEW in Salzburg since May 2014 - The DomQuartier
The cathedral and the Residenz form very much the historical center of Salzburg City. For 200 years, the walkways between the Palace of the Prince Archbishops, the cathedral oratories, art chambers and painting galleries had either been locked up or walled shut. The creation of the DomQuartier has restored the original unity of the Cathedral and Residenz complex - and incorporates the Benedictine Abbey of St. Peter's. A walking tour provides new perspectives on the city as well as insights into its architectural highlights and baroque treasure chambers. 134 doors lead you to 2,000 exhibited pieces spanning 1300 years of art and cultural history, on an area that spans the better part of 15,000 square meters.
