This was a wonderful experience with a lot of art, culture and history. The Abbey, grounds and cemetery are well maintained. Definitely worth to visit

The monastery, catacombs, churches, chapels that make up,this area are full of atmosphere and of real interest to anyone who is interested in history or old bases of religion.

I really don't think you can go wrong with anything you see or tour in Salzburg. It is a beautiful Abbey and city. History is everywhere and the architecture is spectacular. There is so much to see and do in the city you could be there for days.

Whether in summer or during Christmas or Easter, this stunning abbey nave is a must see when in the old town. Christmas eve mass is particularly spectacular.

maybe its just my dislike for all things rococo, but this church was incredibly disappointing (the rude employee that almost pushed my little sister over while exiting the church didnt help either). the catacombs and cemetery behind are similarly as impressive

This is one of the best churches in Salzburg. Inside and outside is beautiful. And when you add the cemetery around it, than this is a great spot to visit.

It is a nicely decorated church. Ceiling especially looks impressive. Nice place to find some peace just like any other church. A cemetery nearby - Petersfriedhof - should not be missed.
