Erzabtei St. Peter

Salzburg, Austria

The Abbey of St. Peter in Salzburg is the oldest existing abbey in the German‐speaking countries. The founder of the Church of Salzburg, St. Rupert originally founded St. Peter's Abbey in 696 AD. The present building was constructed in the Romanesque period, then completely renovated in the 17th and 18th centuries in the Baroque style. Here Mozart's famed Mass in C Minor premiered in 1783, with his wife, Constanze, singing the lead soprano role. Mozart often directed orchestra and choir here and played its organ.
