Owner description: 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.

The private crypts were part of the inspiration for the crypt scene in the Sound of Music. A unique cemetery, followed Rick Steeves guide as we wandered and it was very helpful.

Another Salzburg must-see. Well tended, with beautiful monuments. Again quite a few tourists around but everyone was very respectful and quiet; mindful of the place. There is a bakery near here that everyone should check out as well, but buy the small loaf because the large one feels like it weighs ten pounds!

The same interesting Cemetery we've seen only in Oberammergau, but it is not so solitary because of tourists

The Cemetery and Catacombs are a very beautiful peaceful area within the Old city - entrance is close to the funicular up to the Castle

Well worth a visit, very tranquil and thought provoking. Easy to get to after a vist to the castle and free.
