“Well worth a visit - and not that hard to find.”

Friedhof der Namenlosen
Ranked #249 of 586 things to do in Vienna
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 August 2012

Well worth a visit not only if you are a fan of 'Before Sunrise', but also if you are interested in this unusual side of the city. It is touching to see how much care has been lavished on this tiny cemetery. The simple identical white iron crosses, adorned with the figure of Christ, have greater resonance than more elaborate monuments would have. And despite the noise and dust of the neighbouring cement works, there is a real sense of tranquility.

To get there is quite straightforward by public transport, although we did end up getting on the wrong bus once. It is easiest to get a 76A bus from Enkplatz to Alberner Hafen (about 20 minutes) Enkplatz is on the U3 u-Bahn line. It is slightly complicated because there are several bus stops with Alberner in their name! The bus turns round at Alberner Hafen and then go back to Kaiserredesorfer Strasse. To get to the cemetary walk through the industrial estate following the sign.

A quaint little place in the outskirts (far suberbs) of the city surrounded by some industrial areas. There are no lights at this Friedhof at night so it's best to go there in the morning, although i still enjoyed my night visit, pitch black as it may have been.

It's just nice to think that quietly tucked away amidst the city's heavy industry, away from the cultural center where names such as Mozart or Strauss are not just remembered, but even celebrated lies the cemetery of the nameless. Here, poor unidentified souls found drifting in the donau, there for one reason or another. may their souls rest in peace.
