This historic old graveyard in the middle of the city center in Saulsburg is a must see. It’s filled with all sorts of historic monuments and is one of the sites where the sound of music was filmed. You’ll remember the garden where the Tripp...More

Visited this on our way back from the Salzburg fortress. You just cant miss it! Such a beautifully landscaped St. Peter'scemetry. Weather was super and the garden was full of blooms! Catacombs are also located here.

one of the oldest Cemeterys in Salzburg... take some time to wander around and maybe you're lucky and the bakery is open (you will smell it if it's open :-) so you can grab some realy good fresh bread or a little brioche

We visited this quaint cemetery on one of our tours around Salzburg. Since we were there in May, the flowers were in bloom and it was beautiful. It is located on the side of a hill, so the walkways were up and down and all...More
