Along Linzer Gasse is Sebastiansfriedhof which is fairly hidden and it is here that many notable people are buried including the Father and wife of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It is a tranquil place and possibly overlooked due to the sheer scale of other attractions in Salzburg but definitely worth exploring.

central location, nice place to go to escape throngs of tourists and mid day heat. Interesting to read the old grave markers; beautiful noise as the church bells tolled the noon hour. Good place to recharge your batteries after lots of walking.

The tomb of Archbishop Wolf Dietrich is the center point of this cemetary, but it is interesting to look at all the old tombstones. The inscriptions and decorations tell history in an unusual way. Paracelsus is also buried here.

This church might seem like a simple church since it has few decoration inside it, but this lack of "luxury" is what gives this place a different perspective. as the church is sort of hidden in the maze of tiny streets and lots of stairs in Salzburg, it is a very quiet place that somehow shows you this humbleness feeling.

This cemetery is in the centre of the former cloister of St Sebatians church. Both in winter and summer, it is a tranquil place with lots of interesting features - Mozart's wife is buried here. The downside is the cypress trees which have been allowed to grow too large and overshadow quite a bit of the graveyard.

This is a very, very special place if you like to feel peoples souls buried in this special place. You will find graves older than 200 years in a very scenic surrounding. Also the Salzburg catacombs are at this place and definitively worth a visit.

I wanted to visit this place as it is the final resting place for family members of Mozart. It is a peaceful place to come to.

Together with the St Peter cemetery is this one a small jewel. Many tourists even stroll past it without noticing it. The old cemetery is located next to the St Sebastian church.Previously the small cemetery had probably been a pest cemetery. 1595-1600 commissioned by Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau (Italian architect Andrea Bertoleto) as the cemetery at the Cathedral at...
