The most beautiful cemetery I will probably ever see in my lifetime. If I could have stayed in Salzburg for a year I don't think I could see everything to see there. I certainly wouldn't ever get tired of looking at it all.

Our guide pointed this little gem out to us as it formed the idea for the “hiding cemetery” in the film Sound of Music. It is tucked away and entry by a quiet gate but it is such a beautifully kept cemetery in the Austrian...More
