“Interesting place to roam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

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.

“quiet and charming place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

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.

“A tranquil haven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

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.

“The best Friedhof in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

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.

“Solemn & grave”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

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.
