While walking around Salzburg, I stubbled upon the Petersfriedhof or St. Peter’s Cemetery located at the foot of the Festungsberg. While it is the oldest Christian graveyard in Austria, it reminded me a lot of the cemeteries in New Orleans. Both are beautiful, unique and so full of history. The oldest tombstone in St. Peter’s Cemetery dates back to 1288 with the cemetery itself dating back to about 700.
I walked around for about half an hour before making my way back down to the city for dinner. If you’re in Salzburg, this little cemetery in the shadow of the fortress is worth a quick stop.
I am so honored to be co-hosting Travel Tuesday on A Compass Rose with Sara from Sara Sees! A big thank you to everyone who nominated me. I’m super excited and looking forward to getting to know some of you better and meeting new bloggers over the next couple of months.
If you are new here, here’s a little about myself: I’m a mom (to a 10 year old) working full-time at a real estate firm in Houston. I’m a former college athlete who loves sports but also have a passion for travel and photography. While most of the time, I feel like I’m going 99 mph, I like to think I have time to do it all… especially if it’s something I love.
Now don’t forget to link up below! And Happy Travel Tuesday!
