State Rooms of the Residenz
The Residenz served the prince archbishops as an official residence and domicile as well as a place of representation. The 15 splendidly appointed state rooms of the Residenz reflect over 200 years of the history of power, art and style, from the Renaissance to the Baroque and Classicism.

Terrace of the cathedral arch
A wonderful opportunity to get some fresh air during your museum visit and enjoy Salzburg’s old town from above. As a connection between the Residenz and the cathedral, the cathedral arched terrace offers an incredible view of the cathedral and Residenzplatz as well as the famous panorama of the old town with its town houses, churches and city mountains.
The North Oratorio in the DomQuartier is used for special exhibitions. The last room, a chapel dedicated to Saint Rupert, is particularly worth seeing for its rich artistic decoration.
The chapel of the baroque cathedral (1628), is located in the northern oratory. It was equipped under Archbishop Paris Lodron and consecrated in honor of St. Rupert. For this so-called Rupertusoratorium, court carpenter Simon Claner erected a freestanding altar retable. This forms the frame for a painting that makes the death of Rupert visible to the viewer.

Cabinet of Art and Curiosities
The prince-archbishop’s Cabinet of Art and Curiosities, reconstructed in 1974, is one of the few in Europe whose historical furnishings are still largely preserved. The original showcases from the 17th century contain a wealth of astonishing objects and curiosities from art, nature and technology.
“The Cabinet of Art and Curiosities”
The Long Gallery was built 1657 – 1661. Until secularization in 1803, it served as a picture gallery of the prince archbishops. In this tradition, large-format religious paintings from the art collection of the Archabbey of St. Peter are on display today.
