Jewish Cemetery, Worms
Categories: Cemeteries, Tourist Spots
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.
