We toured the Residenz and Domquartier while there was a rain storm. We were so glad we did. At the time we went there was hardly anyone there. So beautiful and interesting and well worth the time taken to tour the buidlings.

The first thing to say is this is really a complex of museums starting with the state rooms of the prince archbishops and finishing with the museum of St Peter’s Abbey, the oldest Benedictine monastery in the German speaking world. Haydn and Mozart had strong...More

We visited the Residence with our combination ticket, so it was a very good value. We used the audio guides but walked at a steady pace throughout. It still took over an hour. No photos were allowed.

We arrived in Salzburg on a Sunday, when shops are closed, but the Dom Quatier museum was not. Taking a chance, we walled in. The audioguide was very informative & the State Rooms were interesting. Not as opulent as many European "State Rooms," but still...More

Beauty and opulence abounds. Very interesting how the royals lived thousands of years ago. Not a lot of furniture is in there but the rooms are over the top. There is an audio you can listen to that explains a lot about the palace and...More

The gallery -- and I am assuming the painting gallery here -- is a collection of the Archbishop. Sounds dumb to say it that way, but that's all it is. He was a minor figure, related to the Hapsburgs, and he had some paintings. I...More
