Interesting cemetery attached to The Franciscan Friary. Many interesting tombstones and a quaint little chapel that should be looked at.

It seems weird to rate a cemetery, but this spot was so beautiful and the view to the fortress was so nice from here, that I had to give it 5 stars. Very well-maintained cemetery: green and full of flowers. Maybe one of my favourite spots in the city.. Read more »

Attractive cemetery with well maintained and compact graves. Colorful plants and scultpure make this one of the most 'artistic' cemeteries I've seen. The catacombs in the cliff offer nice views of the cemetery, but aren't very imp.. Read more »

Incredible and unique place. A must see in Salzburg for all fans of History and dark stuff. Very easy to find and it doesn't take long to visit it entirely. Plus it's free, except for the catacombs.

One of the most stunning and original burial sites in Europe. Great Opportunity to visit while sightseeing fortess and old town of Salzburg

The catacombs are the highlight. Very old and pretty creepy.
