Mozart Matinee Concert at this former and ancient Benedictine Abbey is magical. The gardens and cemetery are beautiful and memorable to fans of "The Sound of Music". St. Peter's Stiftkeller is, after more than 1200 years, a wonderful restaurant where the manners of Mozart's Salzburg are still evident. It really is like dining during the golden age.

Mozart was one of my favorites as a child. To be able to sit in St. Peter's Abbey in Salzburg Austria and listen to the... More

I visit abbeys, churches and cathedrals to experience their physical beauty and St Peter's Abbey is one of the most beautiful places of worship I have ever visited. The baroque decoration throughout is gentle, light and above all so very tasteful. It was a true pleasure to visit.

The Mozart Dinner Concert at St. Peter's Abbey is a terrific experience, and this was our second visit. Claimed to be the oldest restaurant in Europe (since AD 805, and visited by Charlemagne when it was a monastery), the food was well prepared and the service was excellent, with the string quartet and opera singers performing after the tables are...

This was my favourite stop in Salzburg. So gorgeous! The adjacent graveyard was lovingly maintained and made for a pleasant walk-through. Be sure to stop here if you're in Salzburg.

Travelled here after vsiting the Fortress. It was gorgeous and well worth the visit. The cemetary is peaceful and the Catacombs provide the most picturesque views

We enjoyed visiting the cemetery which provided the inspiration for the escape scene in the Sound of Music. I would not consider this place a must visit site, however.
