“Enjoyed.”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This church is a magnificent structure and I could have spent hours admiring the inspired architecture, carvings and paintings. There is amazing detail to each aspect of the church and I could feel the Lord's influence on those who built such an amazing monument to Christ. We also spent a lot of time walking around the grounds, including the cemetery and the crypts. The grounds are very well kept and most displayed fresh flowers. Sturdy shoes are helpful! Unfortunately, the bread baking was not taking place that day.

“opulent!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

From the moment you walk through the front doors, you will be amazed. The rich fabrics, wood, art and architechture are incredible. Definitely stop here while in Saltzburg.

“Beautiful Abbey”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

This is a beautiful abbey and well worth visiting when in Salzburg Old Town as it is very close to the shops, restaurants and en route to the fort. It is so peaceful and serene even when there are many visitors.

“Great place”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

This is a great place to visit. The cathedral is wonderful, the graveyard is particularly interesting in the catacombs are fantastic. You can't miss this one. I just wish there was more informational material in English about who's buried in the cathedral and graveyard. I think they filmed the scene from the sound of music here. Looks very familiar
