The reviews given earlier are right. It is beautiful even though it’s a graveyard. Be respectful as I found it amusing that some people were all too excited to take their pictures here. Respect the place as it is n you will enjoy it more....More

Considering it's a grave yard you wouldn't expect it to be this colourful, but it's a joy walking among the beautifully decorated graves with all the flowers.

It is hard to say this is a do-not-miss location but it is. The grounds are so well maintained and they are absolutely beautiful. The cemetery is very different than what we envision or see in the US. As we wandered through we felt wonder...More

It feels strange to recommend a cemetery for tourists, but this is honestly the most beautiful and breathtaking church yard that I've ever seen. It's tucked back in a corner, and hugs the natural hills of the environment. It had old graves along with family...More

Don't know how you've stumbled on this review but well done and when you go to Salzburg make sure you visit. It's just below the funicular, has free entry but charges 2 euros to visit the catacombs set in the hillside. The graves are treated...More

Marvellous place for a stroll and do check out the catacombs, the mill, the stony mountains and the breweries around.

A very clean and well kept area. It is very pleasant to walk around here, even though it is a cemetery. Gives a peaceful feeling and a break from the outisde busy touristy area.
