The monuments are a powerful expression of faith. "There is given unto the things of Earth which Time hath bent a spirit's feeling...."

If you like classical music (like I do) this is an essential pilgrimage to make in the city where Mozart lived, composed and died. It is fairly easy to find, about 30 mins tram ride from the center on line 71 and then a 10mns walk, but it does require Google Maps to help you know where to go when you get off the tram (Hint: you will know you are going the right way when you pass a technical college on the right). The cemetery is much quieter than the more famous Central Cemetery down the road, and the only truly famous person to be buried there is Mozart (there is a board by the entrance listing other famous Austrian people buried there but they will be unknown to foreigners). Mozart's burial memorial is up the main path, to the left, in a peaceful, small grove where you can sit down on benches and take in the peace and atmosphere of the place. Keep in mind, though, that the memorial is NOT where Mozart is buried. No one knows exactly where he is buried in the cemetery. An information panel by the memorial does a good job of explaining why that is, but in essence Mozart, in accordance to a passing burial fad at the time, requested a very simple, humble burial, so simple and nondescript that within a few years his grave marker had faded and people forgot where he was buried. Wherever he is, it was absolutely beautiful to sit down on one of the benches by the memorial and listen to his music on my I-pod in the stillness of the place. It is a pilgrimage I really recommend to those who love his music.

I´m from Vienna and I went here for the 4th time. It´s still a lovely place of serenity, peace and, most of all, nature. If you visit Vienna and you want to see something special, go there.

We travelled on the Subway and then a short tram ride. You will see the cemetary on your right, however wait until the stop where you see the entrance. We were guided by a helpful lady who was headed to the cemetary too. She took it upon herself to ensure we got off st the correct stop. All people in Vienna were extremely attentive and kind. Never once did people not stop to help when one looked perplexef. We spent a couple hours exploring. A map is available at the entrance n/c. There is audio availabke for a small cost. Beautifully maintained. This is wheelchair accessible. A very worthwhile side trip.

If you're a classical music buff like I am, this is a glorious, beautiful place in Vienna where Mozart and Strauss are buried. What better place than Vienna to indulge in all things classical?
