St Peter?s Abbey Church was built in 1130-1143 replacing the burned Romanesque church. In the 17th and 18th centuries the façade was redesigned and the cupola and the onion shaped tower were added.

In front of the church stands the hexagonal fountain, once used for fish.

To the right, next to the church, the oldest Christian cemetery in Salzburg is located. Here the composer Michael Haydn and the Cathedral architect Santino Solari are buried.
