Stift Nonnberg

Salzburg, Austria
4.8 / 46
The history of Salzburg began with Nonnberg Abbey. The monastery was founded by Saint Rupert in the 8th century, and from that time it functioned as a convent for noble representatives of aristocratic families (only from the 19th century ordinary girls began to be admitted here). Thanks to the generous donations of wealthy sisters, the abbey amassed an impressive fortune and began to enjoy serious influence in the surrounding lands.

The place where the moms sing in the sound of music with views on the mountains where the shot the hills are alive. Small monetary a bit dark, but you can light a candle.

The small gothic style church is very beautiful. Ancient and mysterious. There are guided tours. I liked it very much.

This is a beautifully maintained cemetery with graves dating back several centuries. Very interesting just walking through and reading the inscriptions. Certainly worth a visit.
