Cemeteries are places of culture and part of Vienna’s history as a city.

Since death is a part of life in Vienna, funerals have been celebrated under the concept of "a schöne Leich" ("a beautiful corpse").

At this historic cemetery from the second half of the 18th century, fans of Gustav Mahler or Sacher-Masoch will be delighted to hear that their graves may be found here. We are going to learn of the lives of some known and less known individuals, such as the victim of the so called "opera murderer".

The tour is lead by Miss Werner, an official tour guide with years of experiences.

Depending on how many people we are we may have lunch at one of the Heurige afterwards.

Join me on this little adventure!
