Description

One entrance ticket – four Salzburg museums

The architectural complex we know today as the DomQuartier comprises the Cathedral and the Residenz – once the center of the prince-archbishops’ power – along with Benedictine St. Peter’s Abbey. With a single entrance ticket, visitors have the opportunity to marvel at four different Salzburg museums. The historical rooms of the DomQuartier also house various collections focused especially on the Baroque history of the city.

A walking tour of the DomQuartier

The starting point for your tour of the DomQuartier are the baroque state rooms of the Alte Residenz. Housed on the upper floor of the former official residence of the prince-archbishops is the extraordinary Residenz Gallery, where visitors can admire impressive artworks by European painters from the 16th to 19th centuries. In addition, the terrace above the Cathedral Arches reveals breathtaking views of the Salzburg historic district as well as the city mountains.

A walking tour of the DomQuartier continues through the rooms of the Cathedral’s Northern Oratory, rooms that are decorated with elaborate stuccowork. These spaces are mostly used for special exhibitions. There is no more spectacular place to marvel at the magnificent interior of the cathedral than the organ loft. The Southern Oratory, for its part, is home to the Cathedral Museum. Displayed there are artworks from the Gothic to Baroque periods, pieces that originate both from the Cathedral itself as well as other churches in the Salzburg Archdiocese.

Visits to the DomQuartier then continue through the Cabinet of Curiosities and the Long Gallery. The tour ends at St. Peter’s Museum, which presents sacred treasures and artistic masterpieces from the collections of St. Peter’s Archabbey.

Guidobald Graf von Thun and the DomQuartier

Prince-archbishop Wolf Dietrich was substantially responsible for the Baroque historical district of Salzburg which we know and love today.  As for the rooms of today’s DomQuartier, we would be remiss not to also mention prince-archbishop Guidobald Graf von Thun. While in power (1654 – 1668), by building the cathedral arches, the Residenz- and Cathedral Squares as well as today’s “Long Gallery” he essentially created the basis for this new museum tour.
