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.

This is not necessarily easy to get to via public transportation but it can be done! There is a section devoted to the famous musicians of the city, definitely worth going to. The grounds are beautiful and the various buildings within are wonderful. Go!

This is a fascinating place with some beautiful monuments and an interesting history but it is difficult to navigate as there is only a map at the main entrance. There is a great cafe at the entrance that I would recommend.

The Jewish portion of the cemetery is accessible whenever the cemetery is open. I believe the hours are 7am to 7pm most days.
