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.

  • A very pleasant place to stroll and soak up the atmosphere. It can seem chaotic, but the truth that we loved and also the atmosphere that reigns. It is free of charge.

  • The cemetery Jewish city of Worms, Heiliger Sand, is one of the oldest in Europe, if not the most. It is one of the most venerable of the Jewish culture in Germany. It is situated just outside the city centre, and at the same time it is very close to the beautiful Cathedral of the city. It has more than two thousand tombstones recorded in Hebrew. It houses nearly a thousand years of Jewish history. It is one of the most beautiful Jewish cemeteries in Europe and one of the main points of tourist interest in Worms. Visit must-see in the city.

  • Oldest Jewish cemetery in Europe. A place of tranquility in the middle of the city. Tranquility and inner peace.
