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.
Reviewed May 7, 2014

What should be a quiet cemetary is bustling with tourist. The grounds however are beautifully kept and the candles on the graves continue to burn. The fenced in cripts were used as a basis for the cemetary scene in the movie The Sound of Music.This is why thousands of people flock here.

This crammed cemetary is beautifully kept and full of history right in the middle of the old town, around from St. Peter's Church.

The Abbey Church of St. Peter in Salzburg was founded by St. Rupert, who is buried inside. Known for its sumptuous Baroque decoration, it is the church of a Benedictine abbey. We stopped by on our day trip to Salzburg.

It is Close to the great Restaurant "St.Peter Stiftskeller" (you might think I am macabre???), so Combine both.
The cemetary is unique with the rock-Formation as a Background, and the many beautiful crossed hand-made by talented lock smithss. Nice photo motives.
Somewhere here Mozart was berried in a mass-grave.
Take your time and walk up (entrance fee) to the catacombs in the rock-Formation of the very old times.
Strongly recommended:
1. See the old functioning mill (with Little river) just outside the semetary to the one side
2. Enter anbd see the cemetary
3. Exit the cemetary and go right into the Restaurant "St.Peter" (go there before 11:45)

The cemetery and the area outside the church is a must see. You can see the cemetery in the movie the sound of music
