Great audio guide for the gallery which takes you through a large collection of art work. The gallery itself is the connected to the cathedral via an outdoor terrace that overlooks two of the nearby squares. You can then view the collection of religious artifacts held by the cathedral. The state rooms were closed on our visit sadly. We did... More

Residenzgalerie Salzburg museum has a fantastic collection of Baroque style paintings and art. They have a wide range of painitings from Dutch to French to Italian paintings. There were Rembrandt's paintings here which was the highlight for us. To our surprise the museumwas heated and felt great after a cold walk outside.

Really, I went to Salzburg to see the Christmas markets, I stayed for the museums. This place is a connected series of spaces, an art gallery, then a balcony overlooking the squares, then galleries on each side of the cathedral's naves, then more galleries and finally some of the residence's apartment rooms.

Pretty remarkable to see how the rich people from our past lived in these days. It's also painful to see how rich they were, because that period were also a lot of poor people. However, it's amazing to see!!! definitely something to go check out!!

Excellent audio guide. Takes at least a couple of hours to go round. This was the best thing to see in Salzburg. The place is huge and stuffed full of treasures. It connects with the galleries in the Dom. Really puts the history of Salzburg into perspective so would be a good place to visit first.

Visiting the Residenz, or prince-archbishop’s palace, was the best thing we did during our day in Salzburg. It cost us €10 as seniors which included an audio guide of the state rooms, art gallery, terrace with a view over the Residenzplatz, the Dom balcony & the museum. You can choose what you look at in detail & what you skip... More

This was a worthwhile visit. Normally we tend to shy away from audio guides but this was worth it. Went here on a warm Sunday afternoon and got off to a good start when the lady on the Cash Desk drew our attention to a Seniors discount!. (which we accepted) It was not crowded and gave us access to some... More

You need time to visit this but well worth it. Not crowded and chairs in almost every room. Windows were open so not hot like other museums. Bathrooms along the way.
