Petersfriedhof Austria, Salzburg

Petersfriedhof

The Petersfriedhof or St. Peter's Cemetery is - together with the burial site at Nonnberg Abbey - the oldest cemetery in the Austrian city of Salzburg, located at the foot of the Festungsberg with Hohensalzburg Castle. It is one of Salzburg's most popular tourist attractions.

Closed in 1878, the site decayed until in 1930 the monks of St. Peter's successfully urged for the admission of new burials.
