Salzburg is full of interesting and historic places and this is another of them. It is easy to both find and add to any walking route if you're interested in history or cemeteries.

We stumbled in this and were very happy to have done so. There were virtually no tourists there when we visited but there were some family members visiting their loved ones so a quiet, respectful approach is necessary. Peaceful and calm it's a worthwhile stop.

A beautiful cemetery, if you have time, just move across the cemetery to look at the burials of Mozart's family.

In the midst of Old Town, this cemetery is well taken care of and it is obvious a tribute to both the dead and the living. Manicured it was interesting to read the names and dates of the departed as many families were buried together....More

the cemetery is located in the middle of Old Town. The grave sites are leased by the family and they have to renew them in order to keep their loved ones buried there. If not then the bodies are buried elsewhere and then another family...More

The most immediate draw was the grave of Leopold Mozart. His monument is very close to the entrance and easy to find. Having paid my respects, I was very pleased to wander the cloisters. The statuary is so sad! Romanticized to be sure, but also...More
