St. Peter Cemetery

Read all ratings, write a rating

SalzburgCARD Member: Others

St. Peter´s Cemetery with its unique backdrop is one of the oldest and most charming cemeteries in the world. It serves as the final resting place for many notable personalities, artists, scholars and merchants:
Santino Solari (architect and builder of Salzburg Cathedral), Nannerl Mozart (Mozart´s sister), Lorenz Hagenauer (the Mozart family´s friend and landlord), Michael Haydn (composer and Joseph Haydn´s younger brother), Paul Hofhaimer (organist and composer), Sigmund Haffner (benefactor and mayor, friend of the Mozart family, Mozart´s "Haffner Serenade" and "Haffner Symphony"), Richard Mayr (opera singer and the first "Ochs von Lerchenau" in the "Rosenkavalier" at the Salzburg Festival), Harry Collins (last commander of the American occupation forces who later lived in Salzburg, honorary citizen of the city).

The so-called "catacombs" hewn out of the Mönchsberg rock are one of the special attractions at St. Peter´s Cemetery (open all year) and probably of early Christian origin. St. Gertrude´s Chapel and the Maximus Chapel are especially worth seeing.
