The area
Address
Neighborhood: Hietzing
Vienna’s 13th district has always been in the shadow of Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens, but has interesting hidden gems waiting to be discovered. Allow half a day for the imposing Habsburg residence and the gardens with Gloriette belvedere. Reserve the other half to discover the secret charms of this posh residential neighborhood. Sneak out of the gardens at Hietzinger Tor (Hietzing Gate) and head down Hietzinger Hauptstrasse for Kaiserpavillon (Emperor’s pavilion), an Art Nouveau gem right on top of U4’s metro railtracks. At local institutions Café Dommayer and restaurant Plachutta you can mingle with residents, their families and friends. Dommayer has risen to fame since waltz king Johann Strauss and his orchestra performed there regularly. If you want to go beyond private villa gazing visit Klimtvilla and Hermesvilla. Art Nouveau genius Gustav Klimt had his last studio in a now beautifully renovated villa, which is open during spring and summer. Hermesvilla at Lainzer Tiergarten animal enclosure and nature park is a must for all romantics and fans of Empress Sissi.

Located 20 minutes by feet from Hietzing, the cemetery is quite huge. There are many entrances but they all lead to the centre where a map is hang on a wall.
The most famous graves are those of Gustav Klimt (GR. 5) that is very simple and written like his signature; Otto Wagner (GR. 13) that is a monument reminding his projects in life; Kohlo Moser (GR. 16); Strauss Family (GR. 13); Franz Grillparzer (GR. 13); Dollfuss (GR. 27); Katharina Schratt and her family (GR. 19).

I suggest to give a look at the important names engraved in this Cemetery and take note of the numbers where they are since there are no indication neither in the cemetery nor on the map. You have to look for them grave by grave.
It is not recommanded in windy and cold days.

Going by feet from Hietzing, it's worth a stop in Gloriettegasse, 9 where the actress Katharina Schratt has lived.

Quite a big cemetery, not far from schonbrunn park, easy to visit both. Parking around is possible. Nice to walk through and see.
Wagner and klimt are buried here but there are a lot of very old and nice grave stones and little monuments to the past. Several entrances are possible.

I went here to visit the graves of the great Gustav Klimt and of Otto Wagner, who design so much of Vienna 100 (and more) years ago. There is a nice hotel biergarten nearby and please don’t miss Otto Wagner’s Hof Pavillion within walking (15 min) distance.
