Since I love to show visitors to Vienna my beautiful city, I completed an apprenticeship as a tour guide. I would like to visit various cemeteries with my guests, e.g. Sankt Marx, where Mozart was originally buried in a "poor grave", then on to the central cemetery, where many artists and celebrities are buried and a separate area has been created for almost all religious communities! The "children's cemetery" always makes me particularly sad.
Since I am very interested in cemetery culture, every time I go abroad, I must visit a traditional, local cemetery.
I can also respond to special interests and wishes as far as time is possible.
I am currently working at the Kunsthistorisches Museum, so I can also tell you about the burial culture of the Habsburgs.

Where you'll be

The St Marxer Friedhof is a cemetery in the 3rd district of Vienna, which was closed in 1874 and is now a listed building. Probably the most famous burial place in this cemetery is that of the composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Then the Vienna Central Cemetery was opened and is one of the largest cemetery complexes in Europe. Due to its many graves of honor and the Art Nouveau buildings, it is one of the highlights of a visit to Vienna.

Werner ist als Wiener bei dem Thema halt ein Experte, ein hervorragender Guide, der durch seine Ortskenntis besticht
