Central Cemetery, Vienna

(4.5/5 based on 1,100 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Here you can spend a lot of time. It is very exciting to walk through this beautiful cemetery. Best just to get in the 71 and a half-day schedule.

  • large, with intresting monuments, and a lot of honourgraves! Falco, Supertramp,.....
  • An impressive "park" full of wildlife. Fun fact: The cemetery has more buried people than the entire population of Vienna.
  • 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.
  • Europas zweitgrößter Friedhof ist sehr schön. Der alte jüdische Friedhof beim 1. Tor wächst ein wenig zu. Lebensraum von Rehen, Feldhasen, jeder Menge Eichhörnchen und vielen anderen Tieren auch.
  • It's a cementary, I don't know what to rate about it. My mother's grave is there and that's the reasons for my visits.
