"St. Peter's cemetary and church." St Peter's Cemetery Tip by hundwalder
St Peter's Cemetery, Salzburg: 33 reviews and 60 photos
St. Peter's is a very well known ancient cemetary. The 1800 year old catacombs are a combination of natural and hand excavated caves embedded in the limestone cliffs of Monchsberg. The cemetary itself is the main tourist attraction but the vertical and very original early Gothic church shown in the photo is also very interesting. The stone block church which dates back about 800 years, contains some precious artwork on the inside but unfortunately has very limited hours during which it is open to the public. It was closed during my visit.
Address: center of Altstadt
Directions: Located immediately to the right of the start of the footpath that leads to Hohensalzburg castle. Also very close to Salzburg dom.
