“Gorgeous”
Reviewed 16 October 2012

Take the 6 line to the end, exit and walk down the street, enter on the left.

Gorgeous cemetery. Just stunning. Once you enter, walk straight back and you'll find James Joyce's final resting place. Be sure to visit more than just his grave, the rest of the cemetery is gorgeous with some impressive and unexpected tombstones. Whimsical flights of fancy to senses of humor to loving to...you name it. Very unique and very original cemetery, lovingly taken care of. Worth a trip.

“How does one rate a cemetery”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

Difficult as it is, because of the amount of foliage and flowers and trees and the layout of this cemetery, it looks more like a park than it does a cemetery. How do you rate a cemetery? I guess by the care given to it and the amount of foliage and flowers growing all around.

Almost each grave site had a unique stone and many had statues which were outstanding. We walked through most of the cemetery and found thoughtful and interesting inscriptions which gave some semblance of understanding of the person who was buried in that grave site

“An oasis overlooking Zurich”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Final resting place for Irish author James Joyce, German actress Thererse Giehse, German novelist Elias Canetti and many others. The cemetery is peaceful with many beautiful statues and monuments. Fluntern is no Pere Lachaise but an easy and enjoyable excursion. Easily accessible from Tram 6 (direction Zoo)
