This is a fascinating place with some beautiful monuments and an interesting history but it is difficult to navigate as there is only a map at the main entrance. There is a great cafe at the entrance that I would recommend.
We went to see the graves of Beethoven and Mozart and ended up having a great visit all around. It's easy to get to by public transit. The map provided at the excellent onsite cafe located near the Tor 2 gate and the signage make...More

the cemetery is vast, but very well laid out and Immaculate. Easy to reach from the centre of Vienna on the 71 Tram.
I visited to see the graves of the famous composers - Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, Wolf, the Strauss and many others.
We were told to take the street car ( #71) from the Ringstraße to the Cemetary and that it is a must to see. The ride is long but interesting as well , the cemetary ist quite some way from the Inner City. Once arriving...More

Hi, Vienna has excellent public transportation to practically anywhere in the city. To get to the Central Cemetery (Zentralfriedhof), take the U3 (the orange line) to Simmering, then take the tram line 6 OR 71 to the cemetery itself. Both tram lines stop at several gates (the cemetery is huge); to explore, you will probably want to get off at the first stop (for the Jewish graves) or at the second stop. Once you are on the tram, it takes about eight minutes to get there.
