Jewish Cemetery, Worms

4.7
#2 of 13 in Things to do in Worms
See some of the oldest Jewish graves in Europe at Jewish Cemetery, which survived against all odds during the brutal years of Hitler's regime. Considered the oldest remaining Jewish cemetery on the continent--though the Jewish graves in the Roman catacombs predate it by a millennium--this site contains still-legible tombstones from as far back as the 11th century. The older section of the cemetery contains about 1,300 tombstones, while the newer part, near the wall of the former city fortifications, contains more than 1,200. The cemetery is protected and cared for by the city of Worms and the region's Jewish community. Planning Worms trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • Unfortunately from some obscure cosmetic on a Saturday now closed... so you can tell something only from the outside... leave images on the Internet are beautiful

  • The ancient Jewish cemetery of worms is a place of peace and reflection in the middle of the city. It is clear that our time is only very limited between centuries-old gravestones. You should take the time occasionally.

  • A really old Jewish cemetery, the oldest gravestones date from the middle ages. Located directly on the Dim.

  • Although Wormerin (51) was I until a few weeks ago the first time at this cemetery. The old stones are very impressive and depressing at the same time. It was worth a visit in any case! A few banks, especially for the many older or younger disabled people, would be very practical and useful. Because is just sit down, to stay and would the whole large bag to let more people do when seating there would be. That would sure also not IMPIOUS, because in other cemeteries, there is this also.
