Trip Planner: Europe / Austria / Austrian Alps / Salzburg Region / Salzburg / St. Peter's Abbey (Stift St. Peter)
At St. Peter's Abbey (Stift St. Peter), see how this medieval monastery served as the home to Benedictine monks for more than 1,000 years. Built about 696 CE, it lays claim to being the oldest monastery in the German-speaking world. St. Rupert founded the monastery at the site of a Late Antique church. Enter the abbey church to see how the Romanesque facade transforms into a Rococo interior. You can view the organs at which Mozart's wife, Constanze, sang at the premiere of his Great Mass in C Minor. Look for the rock tomb--the original tomb of St. Rupert--next to his altar. Check out the shrine under the main altar, which stores most of Rupert′s relics.

Elaborately decorated and decorated with great paintings, it is not only a place of worship, but also satisfies every museum requirement. The courtyard of the monastery and the cemetery do the rest to experience true beauty and peaceful atmosphere. For more information please visit our website. It is stored in the profile.
墓地は綺麗に飾られており、厳かな雰囲気でした。 聖堂内部には感銘を受けました。外観から質素かと思って入りましたが、かなり絢爛豪華で驚きました。 暫くの間、座って壁画などを鑑賞しました。静寂な空間を好まれる方は大聖堂よりこちらに時間をとるのが良いと思います。 more »The cemetery was beautifully decorated and had a solemn atmosphere. I was impressed by the inside of the basilica. I thought that it was simple from the appearance, but I was surprised at the gorgeous ness considerably. For a while, I sat down and watched the murals. I think that it is better to take time here than the cathedral if you prefer a quiet space.
If the history and beauty of architecture are connected together correctly, it turns out magnificent Archtecturnaya memory and a place that you want to visit more and more... Don't be sorry for your time. Visit beautiful places to be imprinted in your memory 😊
A beautiful cementary in the middle of salzburg. Very decorated graves and a beautiful church. Great place to see, especially if you are a sound of music fan.
