Enchanted Tombs at Zentralfriedhof

Posted by on October 14, 2013

Zentralfriedhof is German for “central cemetery”.  Located on the outskirts of Vienna (Wien) Austria in a district known as Simmering, it is one of the largest cemeteries in the world and the largest in Europe by the number of interred.  I visited Zentralfriedhof in the fall of 2012 with a Sikh woman whom had never been to a church or cemetery.  We were both is awe of the size of this cemetery as well as the elaborate tombs of Vienna’s dearly departed.   See for yourself…

    If your drive home somehow brings you through Tucson, let’s meet up.

      We will not be traveling that far south on this trip. It doesn’t appear likely that I will be in or near Tucson anytime soon.
