Definitely not as dramatic as others in Europe, but they are worth taking the time to see if you are spending more than one day in Salzburg.

“Interesting; can be done in 20 minutes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

It's two flights of stairs to see the cave and a decent view. The graveyard around is really spooky but interesting.

“Lots of stairs.......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

Another place we used our Salzburg Card. This is an unusual place for catacombs. Most catacombs are located below ground. These are way up and carved into the side of the mountain walls. The views of the cemetery while walking up is beautiful. The well kept grave sites are maintained impeccably. Take a minute to look at some of the dates on the grave markers, very old!
The catacombs themselves are few, interesting nonetheless.
This tour only takes less then an hour. If you have time with nothing planned, go and do this, it is one more attraction to see.
