The DomQuartier is a unique cultural highlight in the heart of Salzburg City. 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.

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. 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.
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.
