This picturesque cemetery, much of which dates back to the 17th century, provides a secluded spot to escape the bustle of the rest of the city.

    Salzburg a beautiful place to visit
    Wow Salzburg was an absolute highlight of our European holiday. Walking around the old town, visiting the Fort and Mozart museum. We did the sound of music tour which was absolutely beautiful, seeing all the sites of Salzburg and the Lake District was so serene.. if you are visiting Europe definitely put Salzburg on the top of your list to visit. The country side is so beautiful and the food Yum 😋

    Beautiful cemetery and pay the 2 Euro to see the catacombs
    This area really encompasses multiple attractions - the cemetery, churches, and the catacombs. All are worth seeing and except the catacombs are all free. Pay the 2 Euro per person and walk up the stairs to see the church carved into the cliff face.

    Beautiful little cemetery. .
    This cemetery was amazing. There are a few entrances to get into it. The cemetery is loving kept and has an amazing garden through it. It is lovely and quiet and was an amazing place just to have a quiet walk through. It was one of my favourite places to see when I was in Salzburg old town. It is underneath the catacombs and the entrance is in the cemetery.

    For the cemetary fans
    When you are in the main square you will see a sign to the catacombs. Follow it to find the St. Peters Cemetery. I always try to visit cemeteries wherever I go and this one is delightful. Very different from the traditional cemeteries as each grave has flowers and permanent plantings. I wish I had more time to spend but it was so easy to get to I made sure to visit.

    Our favorite thing in Salzburg
    We were looking for the funicular ticket box when we stumbled across this area. It was so interesting to see how other cultures organize and decorate their cemeteries. I also recommend going in the catacombs. It's only a few minutes (but a lot of stairs!!) but the views from the inside of the catacombs into old Salzburg are wonderful. And its also a great way to escape the crowds.
