Overview

Zentralfriedhof is one of the largest cemeteries in Europe. The enormous burial ground spans across 2.4 square kilometers (590 acres) of southern Vienna and is the final resting space for over 3 million people. Designed in 1870 by celebrated landscapers Karl Jonas Mylius and Alfred Friedrich Bluntschli, the graveyard unites all religions in death with exclusive areas for Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim and Catholic burials. Eminent national personalities like Johannes Brahms, Hans Moser and Beethoven are remembered by towering gravestones and splendid sculptures that punctuate the picturesque scenery. The majestic Art Nouveau church of Karl Lueger is the centerpiece of the graveyard and paints a sombre and serene picture.
