Cathedral Excavations

The Cathedral Excavations Museum is part of the Salzburg Museum and located underneath the Cathedral- and Residenzplatz Squares. Visitors interested in history and architecture gain fascinating insights into building activities in the area going back to Roman times.

The Cathedral Excavations Museum and its treasures

The heart of the Cathedral Excavations Museum are the archaeological finds from a Roman villa, of which various walls, architectural elements, channels, heating systems and original mosaic flooring have been discovered and well preserved. Aside from relicts from this private home, interested visitors also get to see the foundations and masonry from the west tower of the Romanesque cathedral, which was expanded in the late 12th century under Archbishop Konrad III, though later demolished after a fire (1598).


The Cathedral Excavations are not barrier-free accessible.
