Overview

The Friedhof der Namenlosen (the cemetery of the nameless) is perhaps the most tranquil of all the graveyards in Vienna. It is situated on the left bank of the Danube and is best known thanks to the film Before Sunrise, starring Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke. Anyone who takes the time to spend some time here will not easily forget the impact of a walk under shady trees surrounded by row after row of inconspicuous graves. As the name suggests, most of those buried here between 1900 and 1940 remain anonymous. Most of the crosses are marked with a chilling "Unknown"; on a few there is only a christian name.
