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
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!
For many people it might be a very weird tourist attraction but my sister and me decided to include it in hour "discover Vienna" tour this year.
The reason why we went there was because we wanted to see the very famous singer Falco's grave.He...More

We went to see the graves of Beethoven and Mozart and ended up having a great visit all around. It's easy to get to by public transit. The map provided at the excellent onsite cafe located near the Tor 2 gate and the signage make...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.
