Old town Salzburg has many wonderful places to visit. We ate in a restaurant in the old abbey and were entertained there by a Sound of music presentation. The abby is lovely as are many other historic sites such as the Mozart house.

The breath-taking view of the inside is worth the visit. Such history here! Because I went in November it was not packed and I was able to walk around and see everything. Wonderful!

Wander in from the cemetary to spend a little time in this jewel of a church. A real beauty in the heart of Salzburg, but transports you to a completely different place and time.

Located in the center of town, you must stop and admire the wonderful outside architecture and then visit the inside of the church. Many statues and windows. Well worth the time. Easy to get to.

We spent only a few minutes here, as there were five priest's conversing near the alter. Very pretty.

In a city rich with history and architecture this is a must see. The church is beautiful and be sure to take the time to read up on its significance. Right outside the front door is an amazing cemetery that you will not see anywhere...More

We enjoyed a traditional delicious group lunch in the Haydn room in the St Peters Benedictine Abbey Salzburg. Main course was Wiener snitzel, and for desert the famous Salzburger Nockerin (vanilla soufflé). The setting is really beautiful and as Salzburg is the home of Mozart,...More

No ticket is required. Mind the step just inside the door. It's a beautiful church and the cemetery is also free to view. Notice the very short graves..no, the people were not buried 'feet down' as many thought- it is to... More
