Salzburg Photos: Stift Nonnberg Abbey in Winter
return to "winter photos"
Stift Nonnberg, sometimes referred to as "Nonnberg Abbey" is actually
a nunnery. Not just any nunnery, but the oldest north of the Alps. It featured
in the musical "The Sound of Music" (even though Fräulein Maria was never
actually a novice, not to mention nun, in this or any facility). Stift Nonnberg
is not open to the general public, only the church and the cemetary can be seen.
The monastery itself is best seen from the Kapuzinerberg (from where this
picture was taken). Note the snow-white Alps in the background and the yellow
Kajetanerkirche church in front of the monastery. Taken on a spectecular winter
day in December.
