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.

St. Peter's Abbey (Stift St. Peter) reviews
The St. Peter Abbey, also known as the Archabbey of St. Peter, is a very beautiful church. The Gothic ribbed vault in the vestibule. Combined with the Renaissance style, the baroque onion dome, or... more »
This church is located in a quieter spot as compared to Salzburg cathedral and hence was less busy. Although not as grand as Salzburg Cathedral but still worth a visit when in the old town. more »
The interior is beautiful, and fortunately very quiet when we visited. The surrounding square and graveyard are also peaceful places to spend some time. more »
Very beautiful place to visit while in Salzburg. The mountain side catacomb opens at 10 am. Currently (September of 2019) the main cathedral is undergoing reconstruction and isn't viewable to the public. But nethertheless a beautiful place to visit that is free. Your Salzburg city card will let you visit the mountainside catacomb for free.
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.
It's a beautiful Abbey.
Если история и красота архитектуры соединены вместе правильно, то получается великолепная архтектурная память и место, которое хочется посетить еще и еще... Не жалейте своего времени. Посещайте прекрасные места, чтобы они были запечатлены в Вашей памяти😊
