Cemetery Tourist Spot
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. Jewish Cemetery is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Worms Edition.

  • Here to "inadequate" or "poor", I already bold. There's probably missing insight. Celia grave stones are in a cemetery. And after hundreds of years to sink some of the ground. And weather. For connoisseurs of the Hebrew language, it could be good to plan for many hours. Very old headstones have legible inscriptions. After about 20 years, I was again suburb. And my circuit used for better photos. The air is also available at over 30 degrees. Please note. At the entrance, there is a water source. Photographs and informative sure a paradise. Until the early afternoon is expected with groups. In the evening a few visitors. It is quiet only in some sections. Quite loud in the acute angle, there to hear the cars. To the quiet railway. Moderate traffic. Good opening hours. Quarter before 8 may be that tramples the Porter already restless. I found something unseemly. Communication, she could ask so politely if she could complete even earlier. For this or that reason. It lacked the decency. Of them aside, the visit is certainly very worthwhile. Holy sand must be one of the most beautiful Jewish cemeteries in D. But not to the quiet. The Luther monument just go the quiet zone. At the next roundabout is the entrance on the right.

  • The Jewish cemetery in worms should be the oldest Jewish cemetery in Europe and shows above all the long history of the Jews in Germany by means of stone monuments. The slightly hilly area offers a lot of gravestones from different centuries.
