St. Marx Cemetery
One of the very few Biedermeier cemeteries from the first half of the 19th century can be found in Vienna. In the St. Marx Cemetery interments were carried out well into the 1880’s. The most famous person to be buried here was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The approximate location of his grave is indicated by a monument. On a stroll through this idyllic setting we will discover other famous personalities, for example the inventor of the sewing machine, Josef Madersperger (whom the tailors’ guild each year offer a wreath), the owner of the carrousel in the Prater, Basilio Calafati, the painters Moritz Daffinger and Peter Fendi, or the first Pamina in “The Magic Flute,” Anna Gottlieb.
A tip for visitors: Especially in springtime when the lilacs are in bloom the St. Marx Cemetery makes a lasting impression!
