Dom (Cathedral)

About the venue

Dom

The cathedral in Salzburg was built between 1614 and 1628 according to plans by Santino Solari; it is the largest early Baroque church north of the Alps and also the oldest bishopric in present-day Austria. The baroque squares surrounding the Cathedral form a unique stage which is used by the Festival and has also been designated a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO.

The foyers of the respective venues open one hour before the start of the performance. Doors to the performance venues themselves generally open 30 minutes before the start of the performance.    
What happens if I am late?
We recommend that you arrive at the respective venue approx. 30 minutes before the start of the performances. Despite this, should you arrive after the performance has started, please contact the staff service immediately, who will be able to assist you. We strive for the possibility of a late admittance, but there may be productions in which there is no late admittance because of excessive disturbances caused to the rest of the visitors.

If there are any changes, we do our utmost to inform you in timely manner. However, it is ultimately your responsibility to inform yourself of any changes.
