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
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 »
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.
