DomQuartier Salzburg: Entrance Ticket and Audio Guide

8. DomQuartier Salzburg: Entrance Ticket and Audio Guide

Discover Baroque power and splendor across 15,000 square meters with 2,000 magnificent exhibits from 1300 turbulent years. The cathedral and Salzburg Residenz make up the historical center of the city. However, the passages between the archiepiscopal palace, the cathedral oratory, as well as the Kunstkammer and the art galleries were closed or walled off for 200 years. With the establishment of the DomQuartier, the original unity of the cathedral and Residenz complex was restored. A tour of the complex allows you to discover new views of the city and unknown insights into the architectural buildings and Baroque treasure chamber. The ensemble opened to the public on a tour for the first on 17 May 2014. Here, 134 doors opened to 2,000 exhibits from 1300 years of art and culture across 15,000 square meters. The idea of the tour through the DomQuartier goes back to Prince Archbishop Guidobald von Thun. He was one of the most important builders of the Baroque period in Salzburg. During his 14-year reign (1654 – 1668), he decisively shaped the image of the city. He built the cathedral arches, the Residenz and cathedral squares, and the art gallery (now the Long Gallery at St. Peter’s Abbey). He also created the passageways between the cathedral and the Residenz as well as St. Peter’s Abbey. After the dissolution of the Prince Archbishopric of Salzburg in 1803, the unity of the cathedral and the Residenz was lost. However, it has now been reconstructed after 200 years. First up, tour the State Rooms of the Salzburg Residenz Palace, home to the prince archbishops’ living quarters and official seat. Opulent interiors, extravagant stucco, and superb ceiling frescoes are witnesses to the mission of the rulers to present themselves in a magnificent way. You then continue on to the Residenz Gallery, which displays European paintings from the 16th to the 19th century with a clear focus on the Baroque period. The subsequent Cathedral Arches Terrace combines the secular with the spiritual center: the Salzburg Cathedral. A magnificent view of the city opens up from the Cathedral Arches Terrace – as it were between heaven and earth. The original structure of the North Oratory of the cathedral will be recorded in the future with special exhibitions. Initially, the Salzburg Museum with the Rossacher collection is a guest. The organ loft, which offers an impressive view of the cathedral, leads the way to the Cathedral Museum, the Kunstkammer, the Long Gallery, and the Museum St. Peter in the newly adapted Wallistrakt. After looking into the Gothic choir of the Franciscan Church, the tour ends in the magnificent Carabinieri Hall of the Salzburg Residenz. In addition to the works of art from the Residenz Gallery, the Cathedral Museum, and Salzburg Museum, St. Peter’s Abbey displays its treasures for the first time in a specially designed permanent museum. The Benedictine monastery of St. Peter, located immediately adjacent to the cathedral and Residenz complex, is considered the oldest continuously running monastery in the German-speaking countries and was instrumental in the development of cultural and intellectual life in Salzburg. The abbey has an art collection with an estimated 40,000 exhibits. The most beautiful objects are presented in the newly founded Museum St. Peter for the first time since 1982.
