The Salzburg Residenz

 You might have a sore neck after viewing the ceilings at the Residenz, but you will be glad you did.

The fifteen State Apartments that can be toured in the Salzburg Residenz represent three centuries of style and the preferences of the Prince Archbishops that commissioned these beautiful, sometimes gaudy, rooms.  Be sure to listen to the narrative on the personal audio- guide, as the details of the rooms are quite interesting.

The Residenz, its architecture, interior design and decorative artwork were the products of the  master craftsmen.  The furniture, stuccowork, frescos and paintings are of superior quality. Noticing all of the details that can be found in the Residenz takes time, but it is well worth the effort.
