Being a fan of the sound of music it was nice to see one of the sites in the heart of Salzburg. We went into where the tomb stones were which is where they filmed the family hiding at the end of the movie. It was full of old world charm and quite interesting walking around.

We stopped in here while visiting Salzburg. We we fortunate enough to see a local family in their traditional clothing baptizing twins. What a gorgeous church with so much history! Mozart's sister is buried near the altar.

We loved visiting this Church! There was so much to look at! Amazing. There was a choir singing while we were there. We stayed and listened to them. I highly recommending adding this to your list to see while in Salzburg!
