Petersfriedhof
#5 of 100 Sights & Landmarks in Salzburg
The ground level here is scenic but spend the 2 euros and make your way up the catacombs -- simple but unique holy caves with a little platform that has great views.
We paused quite often despite the soft rain to marvel at some of the grave sites covered in beautiful flowers and artistic grave markers each telling a short story of individual laid to rest there.

Salzburg Cathedral (Dom)
#6 of 100 Sights & Landmarks in Salzburg
The Choir and Organ Gallery (with fantastic views over the nave) and the Cathedral Museum can only be visited as part of the Dom Quarter ticket which is highly recommended (see separate review).
This Church is one of the best examples I have seen of Baroque architecture, it is truly vast and within an easy walk from many of the other top sights in Salzburg.

Cemetery of St. Sebastian (Friedhof St. Sebastian)
#9 of 100 Sights & Landmarks in Salzburg
The Mozart Family grave site is obvious and you will find it immediately but wander throughout the graveyard and read the headstones and travel through history in your mind.
The grave sites are leased by the family and they have to renew them in order to keep their loved ones buried there.
Franziskanerkirche

We climbed the many steps to the convent, quietly explored the courtyard, took in the views of the city (spectacular) and lingered for a while before entering the church.
From a lookout near the convent one gets a spectacular view of the mountain ranges that surround Salzburg.
