If you search for the most magnificent side of Salzburg, this in-app audio tour is what you need. The tour starts in front of a fountain on Residenzplatz, the city’s largest square. Admiring the Cathedral of Salzburg, the first masterpiece of Italian Baroque in Austria, you will learn the story of the two most revered saints, Rupert and Virgil. You will examine the square, the fountain, the surrounding houses, all the architectural details, and listen to the stories of the past. Next, you’ll head to the Church of Saint Michael with its charming signs of the Rococo style, ceiling frescoes, and altar paintings showing three principal angels: Michael, Gabriel, and Rafael. Then, you will cross Domplatz and visit the Cathedral. Prepare to catch every tiny detail both outside and inside the majestic church. Standing in the Cathedral, you will marvel at its rich interior and discover fascinating facts about everything you see: from the statues and the nave to the origins of the Counter-Reformation and the vault frescoes that tell about the life of Christ as comic strips. Saint Peter’s Abbey is the last church that awaits you during the tour. It hides many secrets, with Catacombs and a picturesque cemetery among them. Step under the mesmerizing vaulted ceiling and enjoy moments of peace near the tombs of the great Haydn and the church’s founder, Saint Rupert. Note! Entrance to the churches is not guaranteed if you visit earlier than 10 AM or later than 6 PM.
