Remember the cemetery where the Von Trapp family hid near the end of the musical, "The Sound of Music"? Like many scenes, it was filmed in an American film studio, however the movie set was inspired by St. Peter's Cemetery in Salzburg which was established around 700 AD.

Are you a fan of the musical, "The Sound of Music"?
It's definitely one of my all-time favorites! When we visited Austria in 2018, I wanted to see as many of the sites from the musical as possible. One of the most interesting was the cemetery where the family hid towards the end of the film. In addition to St. Peter's Cemetery was St. Peter's Church plus some nearby catacombs carved into the rocky hill.
