At Central Cemetery, see how the city of music built monumental tombs for some of the world's best composers. Landscape architects Karl Jonas Mylius and Alfred Friedrich Bluntschli designed the cemetery in 1870. This final resting place for people of all religions spreads across 2.5 sq km (620 acres). Take a tour with an audio guide and check out the most interesting spots: honorary graves, a church, presidential crypt, Mozart cenotaph, War Memorial, and Park of Peace and Power. Take a car or a public "cemetery bus" line to see more spots, and visit the graves of famous composers Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, and Strauss.

  • When you have enough of all the museums and the sights up and down is gone, it is time to put in the tram 72 and to go to the central cemetery. That is the correct arrival. Style in the "Bim", such as the Wiener says. The day should be sunny, although I also romantic can imagine it in the rain and especially more quiet than usual. Of course the Art Nouveau Church is located a hit with all the tombs of TIME WAAAAY IMPORTANT... But my favorite part is the old Jewish cemetery with its overgrown and partially sunken graves. Here it can be glorious for hours to run around and indulging the thoughts! You need also to for a city break!

  • It was a need to take advantage of the opportunity and visit the cemetery as lovers of music by Udo Jürgens. The aircraft over the cemetery, who use every minute to the landing were disturbing. A visit is well worth it where he served so much witness to the past and one feels in an art museum.

  • Meaningful place for classical music mania. There are Beethoven, Brahms, Strauss, Mozart so many composers monument in here. I heard Antonio Salieri also in here but it's very difficult to find. Very very large place so searching the location you want to go first.
  • The central cemetery is a great place to take a walk. It is very green and extremely quiet.
  • A beautiful, leafy, peaceful cemetery with some historic graves.
  • Yes. Take the tram there specially in Autumn.
  • Where the death, living in the hug of life
