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.

“Beautiful church and cemetery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

The church is quaint and the grounds are beautiful. There is even a working water wheel to serve the bakery on the grounds.

“This is very interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

There are names of people here on some very beautifully designed head stones going back centuries, it's well worth a sticky beak, and look around.

“A Walk through St. Peter's Cemetery--What a Moving Experience--”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

This century-old cemetery, where Joseph Haydn's brother and Mozart's sister are buried in the "chapel" with the Dance-of-Death paintings (not to be missed, by the way) is quite an experience. But what adds to this is a walk up (not down ...) to the catacombs (there is an entrance fee of a bit more than one Euro), where 4th-century Christians confessed to their religion. The catacombs are carved out of the rock above the cemetery.

“Peaceful and Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Beautiful cemetery with unusual and ornate iron grave markers. Worth the half our or so that it takes to stroll through - we went there twice!
