Central Cemetery, Vienna Reviews
One of the largest cemeteries in the world and in my opinion one of the top 3 sights while in Vienna. Easy reachable with the 71 tram leaving in front of the Opera House. Established in 1863 this place got some serious stories to tell and I highly recommend going there. Not just the honorary graves of famous Austrians are worth taking a look at, you also should check out the old jewish part of the cemetery and memorials all around the grounds.
It's hard to find words to properly describe the opportunity to visit a cemetery...all I can say is you definitely want to see this one. There are many famous graves here, including musicians such as Beethoven, Schubert, Strauss, and the famous scientist Boltzmann.
I was super excited when I visited this place... If you love art and you are artist I think here is one of first places that you have to visit. Beethoven Mozart Schubert all are here😍
Great cemetery and park to visit in Vienna. Many interesting graves and Falco ist also buried here. Not the most picturesque one but interesting.
It seems a little odd to be rating a cemetery but as they go this was one of the nicer ones! What more can be said?!
