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.

“Great setting at the base of the mountain.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Not very big but many plots are squeezed in to the small space. Easy access to this beautiful setting that seems to be well kept.

“Peaceful part of town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

St. Peter's cemetery is a very interesting place to visit. It's like a calm oasis from the hustle and bustle of the shops and constant hill walking you do in Salzburg. I found it fascinating to compare the differences between cemeteries in the UK to here in Austria. I would defiantly recommend a trip to the cemetery after a look around the cathedral.

“Amazing.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

This place is just -- it is hard to explain. Seeing the ancient Headstones imbedded in the walls, and a German soldier carved on a tomb, it is an amazing place. A must see..

“Is it disrespectful to treat a cemetery as a tourist site?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

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.

“Gorgeous place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

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!
