The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Salzburg (Latin: Archidioecesis Salisburgensis) is an archdiocese of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church in Austria. The archdiocese is one of two Austrian archdioceses, serving alongside the Archdiocese of Vienna.

The Archbishopric of Salzburg was a prince-bishopric of the Holy Roman Empire until 1803, when it was secularized as the Electorate of Salzburg. The archdiocese was reestablished in 1818 without temporal power.

The Archdiocese of Salzburg is currently a vacant see (sede vacante). Archbishop Alois Kothgasser, S.D.B., who had served as Metropolitan Archbishop since 2002, retired on Monday, November 4, 2013 after his resignation was accepted by Pope Francis.
