DomQuartier Salzburg - approx. 75 minutes' drive (approx. 75 km) from the PillerseeTal
The installation of the DomQuartier restored the original architectural unity of the Cathedral and Residenz precinct, also including the Benedictine monastery of St Peter’s and thus creating an internationally unique museum project.
The DomQuartier affords a unique survey of 1,300 years of political domination, art, music and architecture. It is the authentic place in the centre of the Salzburg UNESCO World Heritage site to experience history through all the senses.
You’ll encounter magnificently furnished staterooms, alternating special exhibitions in the Residenzgalerie and north oratory, a unique view of the old town from the Terrace of the cathedral arch, a fabulous view inside the cathedral
from the west gallery, and the ecclesiastical treasures of the Cathedral Museum. You‘ll subsequently pass through the Cabinet of Art and Curiosities and the Long Gallery of St. Peter. In the Museum of St. Peter, the most beautiful objects from the rich art collections of the Benedictine monastery are on display. After walking through the Kaiser Hall, you arrive back where the tour started: the magnificent Carabinieri Hall. With a free audio guide in ten languages, you can explore the DomQuartier on your own.
