Residenz Palace

About the Venue

Residenz Palace

The Salzburg Residenz Palace in the heart of the old town was the seat of the prince archbishops and served them over the centuries as city residence and for representation purposes. Today, the former palace complex of the Salzburg rulers presents itself as a symbiosis of unique architecture and exquisitely furnished rooms. These offer a breathtaking ambience for exclusive events, concerts, fairs, conferences or gala dinners. They can also be visited as part of a DomQuartier tour. In the meantime, the art and antiques fair at Easter, as well as the Salzburg art fair have become a fixture in the Salzburg art scene in the summer. Visitor numbers DomQuartier 2017: approx. 125,000 visitors (open year round)
