Take tram 71 from the operahouse, it's on the way to the other cemetery (Zentralfriedhof) but get off before (St. Marx) and follow the signs to the cemetery. It is easy to follow. When you enter the cemetery, walk up the hill down the main road. Mozart is at the top of the hill to the left in a clearing.... More

Perhaps this was just me but I had to ask at least three different people to find this cemetery so here's how to do it. Catch the tram number 72 from central Vienna, the destination is given as Zentral Freidhof. Alight at St Marx stop. Cross the road and walk in the direction the tram was travelling. Soon you will...

here you find Mozart's grave (what they believe it might be), and other well known personalities. but more about this quiet beautiful cemetery, it is the last biedermeier one in this town, the park is not only for people who are visiting but for everybody who is keen to stroll around. the viennese people go during spring there, just to...

This Cemetery lies in a large area on a curve of the south-east ring motorway.The whole area has many unnamed cemeteries & thick vegetation of trees with plenty of shade, forming a green back drop to the perimeter.Herein lies the unmarked grave of the musical genius Mozart buried in a grave without any markers & tombstones in the Masonic style...

I went and sought out the place because Mozart's true resting place is here. I was surprised how quiet the place is. No tarmac, just trees, gravestones and roots line the way. Beautiful and quiet. Had lunch opposite Mozart's grave and had plenty of time to to reflect. Didn't see anyone for an hour and well maintained. Preferred this cemetery... More

No one knows exactly where Mozart was buried in this cemetery, but they know he is here somewhere in a mass grave. They have put up a monument for him in the general vicinity. This cemetery is much smaller and not as well kept as the Zentralfreidhof but it is shady and very peaceful. The whole cemetery is being refurbished.... More

This old cementary is located now directly under the highway. The atmosphere here is amazing - if you pass the gate, you feel like 100 years ago lost in the time. Now a lot of graves will be renovated, but walk through this cementary has something mystical.

Legend has it that Mozart was buried in an unmarked pauper's grave. Not so. In the quiet St Marx Cemetery on the outskirts of Vienna is this modest grave of the composer. The little marble angel seems to be sobbing and the column on the grave seems to be broken off - a symbol of the end of the bloodline... More

The cemetery is away from the touristic attractions and sites of Vienna, in a very quiet area, still easily accessible by tram. It's worth the visit, the cemetery is one of a kind with so many graves of important or well-known Austrian and European historical and cultural figures. The grave of Mozart is the highlight, nicely maintained and flowered. St... More

I have went to search for this place on my own. In the city itself there are no signs or guides I have found. I have gone there by foot from the Museumsquartier and it took me an hour and a half. You have to go through an urban setting and some car dealerships, past a railway too. The graveyard... More
