A must see for Mozart fans as his wife and father are buried here. This place has a stillness and peacefulness about it. The sculptures are magnificent and some of Salzburg's finest people are at rest here.

Well manicured graves, and beautiful headstones. Statue of Roman soldier was interesting. Spend a minute reading some of the stones.

This was our first stop on a walking tour of Salzburg. Our tour guide showed us the Mozart family graves, which our choir students were interested in, and she also got the key to show us inside the central structure, which was pretty and interesting.

This seems weird recommending a cemetery but this one is quite beautiful with interesting history and unique markers.

Happily we stumbled on this fetching and exotic cemetery, hiding on back streets up against the cliff wall under the castle. It is a riot of "yard art" marking last resting places. What a whimsy! And it is right next door to the oldest restaurant...More
