I have been here many times over the years and am always pleasantly surprised how well the grounds are kept up. If you are lucky you may even see a "reh" or two - the deer which have made the Cemetery their home.
It's very big so you must expect a long walk. If you are lucky you may enconter deers. It's not that central...i took the tram to it which was pretty nice because i got to see a part of vienna that was not touristic and...More
We almost passed on going to the cemetery as it was not near our riverboat. On our free day in Vienna, our sense of adventure won out and with the help of some directions, we took the two subways and a tram ride and found...More
I coincidentally ended up in the Old Jewish Cemetery part when I got off the train (it is quite a travel from the city center). I was deeply impressed. Not only by the beauty, tranquility and richness of this part of the cemetery, but much...More
Working city cemetery, not meant to be a tourist attraction. That being said, loads of tourists. Zero information in English, no maps provided. Would have been nice if there was a self guided walk or something. Would have loved to learn more about some people...More
We went explicitly to see the graves of some of the music greats: Beethoven, Brahms, the Strausses, Schubert, Von Suppe, and Salieri (obstructed during our visit by some maintenance). The musical graves are beautiful and memorable and are all located in one area (except Salieri)....More
Here you will understand, why the Viennese people like life and see death being part of it. And find as well many famous people buried here - almost all. Only Mozart has found his last place in a small cementary in 3rd district...
Beautifully-maintained cemetery with lots of trees. Found the musicians' graves quite easily: 200yds up the main path then turn left. Lunch at the cafe near the entrance was lovely and not too expensive - they do great pastries too.
It is incredibly large cemetery in Vienna especially well known for being burial grounds of world famous classical composers, such as Beethoven, Schubert, Brahams, strauss etc.
Incredibly inspiring place for Classical music lovers like myself.
The central cemetery in Vienna is one of the largest in Europe. We found it easy to get to by public transport. There are several entrances. There is a bus that runs on a circuit right round the cemetery (free if you have a Vienna...More

Hi, Vienna has excellent public transportation to practically anywhere in the city. To get to the Central Cemetery (Zentralfriedhof), take the U3 (the orange line) to Simmering, then take the tram line 6 OR 71 to the cemetery itself. Both tram lines stop at several gates (the cemetery is huge); to explore, you will probably want to get off at the first stop (for the Jewish graves) or at the second stop. Once you are on the tram, it takes about eight minutes to get there.
