St Peter's Cemetery, Salzburg: 33 reviews and 60 photos

 
 

This is one of the most peaceful and interesting spots in Salzburg. The church is a simple Romanesque shell that hides an elaborate Rococo interior that is well worth a look. Outside the church, you'll find a quiet, flowering garden-cemetery that is the final, peaceful resting place for many celebrated Salzburg residents. Just above the cemetery, you'll find the Catacombs which were carved into the rock face by 3rd century Christians. For a euro, you can visit the Catacombs, which are less spectacular for the cavernous interior as they are for the amazing views over the city.

I have a picture of St. Peter's Church itself in my last travelogue (Photographing Salzburg).
