A very old cemetery, going back to 1059 when the first Jews were buried here . Burial stopped 1911 . Something like 2500 tombstones in the old and new sections together. Very nice . Admission free . Closed Saturdays and Jewish holidays.

We were shown the cemetery on our tour with our German friends and told a lot about it of why the stones and notes of paper had been left on the graves. Well worth a visit.

This simply is a very beautiful place. If you visit Worms you should not miss it and take a stroll through the old tombe stones.
