St. Peter's Church, cemetery and more Jun 30, 2011
This part of the city is one of the oldest parts. Christianity spread from this spot through the city. The church itself is a question of personal taste (mint green inside) but sometimes offers great organ concerts. The cemetery dates back to the beginnings of Salzburg and many famous names can be found (i.e. Mozart's sister Nannerl) In the rock face behind the cemetery small windows can be seen which belong to the catacombs used by the early Christians in this area. Guided visits of these catacombs are offered for a very low price (last time I was there I paid EURO 1 per person) - time for the tours can be found on the gate. Although all you see in the catacombs are the rooms used by the Christians it is impressive to imagine that people have lived in here. Also the views from the windows over Salzburg are worth the little entrance fee. Don't miss to visit the monastery bakery at the entrance still producing traditional Austrian bread.

It certainly is one of the cheapest attractions in Salzburg but equally rich in history and beauty
