Death and Vienna

The Viennese are said to have a penchant for the morbid: death is sung about in numerous (‘Heurigen’) songs and ‘a schöne Leich’ (a dignified funeral with many mourners) was celebrated for centuries. You can learn more about this, for example, on a trip to one of the cemeteries where many celebrities have found their final resting place.



Vienna Central Cemetery

With over 300,000 graves the central cemetery is one of the largest of its kind in Europe. It is the final resting place of many famous personalities including Beethoven, Schoenberg, Strauss, Leon Askin and many more …. You must not miss the Jugendstil church of St Charles/Karl Barromäus, a masterpiece of Art Nouveau.

Vienna and Death - a Special Relationship

Up until the mid-18th century there were many cemeteries in the centre of the city. Today, only a few gravestones mounted on the church wall or in a crypt under the church remind us of the past. We follow these traces and learn about the pompous funerals and paupers' graves; from the Brotherhood of the Body of Christ to the Josephinian burial regulations.
