Jewish Cemetery, Worms

(4.6/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Hardly any one has crossed the entrance, one is immersed as in another time. You get nothing from the noise of the city. Very interesting epitaphs.

  • Same appearance of the cemetery is something quite unique in comparison to more modern cemeteries (like this). The cemetery consists of several parts, grouped age. You will find also the stones of rich families. Something out of the ordinary.

  • Recommended is a visit to the oldest Jewish cemetery in Europe. I remember and mention the peace and individuality of this courtly love markets / SV: monument. The cemetery is through peace + nature... Ivy ranking highly aged traces the historical gravestones. A place of remembrance.
