This picturesque cemetery, much of which dates back to the 17th century, provides a secluded spot to escape the bustle of the rest of the city.

Situatedd besdie the Stiftskirche St Peter, it is worth taking a few minutes to pass through the cemetery which is apparently thee oldest in Austria. Having a wheelchair user with us meant we could not access the catacombs.

Probably not a place to take your kids, but quiet adults will relish the beauty of the grounds next to St Peters. Take a tour through the carved catacombs up in the walls. Very Cool!
