During the 7th century the monastery of St Peter was founded becoming one of the wealthiest churches due to large donations of the Bavarian dukes. The St Peter's restaurant in the abbey of St Peter, first mentioned in 803, is still running nowadays.

Listed as World Heritage Site by UNSECO, Salzburg managed to preserve this extraordinarily rich urban fabric from the Middle Ages to the 19th century.
