More Photos from Sazlburg…

We got up early and walked more of Salzburg on our second morning. If you go, know that you can spend a lot more time in Salzburg and still not see it all. Salzburg is Mozart’s birthplace and we didn’t go into any of the Mozart-related places. There just wasn’t time. We did walk the square and streets around those places.

St. Peter’s Cemetery is lovely. In fact, all of the the cemeteries we visited on this trip were places I would be happy to be buried (except that I prefer cremation but that’s a story for another day). Each plot is like a garden and because there are many names on most of the plot markers, it appears that people are buried in layers.

Even though the marker above is a little creepy, it is an arresting image. The marker below is a bit more restful.

We walked and walked and after a while I got a little lost. It was good that Jeff was keeping up with where we were going.

It is an uphill walk to the Nonnberg Abbey, where Maria von Trapp of Sound of Music fame was a postulant before deciding not to become a nun. This is the cemetery outside of the church.

The views from each of the high places we visited were different.
