This is just another Cemetery here. Nothing special. Not a tourist attraction. You can visit if you are a jew.

This is the burial place of a number of very prominent Jewish Rabbis, including the renown Chasam Sofer. Make sure you book in advance. Otto was the Jewish guide at the site and he gave a good job explaining the history here.

We walked there from the city center (about 20 minutes) and we were lucky enough that it was open and the gate keeper told us the story of how the place has been saved. It was very moving and meaningful to pray there. (for those...More

It's part of the old jewish cemetery that last till nowadays. One of the tombs is Chatam Sofer's. It's open for public- you will have to contact the person who will open the place and guide you through.
