I would recommend wisiting this cemetery in the fall, when the atmosphere is really specific, almost a bit spooky. You could have a nice walk around the old monuments and make some amazing photos. The most boring and uninteresting thing is Mozart's palce

Visiting Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's eternal resting place was amply rewarding. Beautiful park like setting with many people simply there to be inspired, read or reflect. The resting place in easy to find. It is about 350 yards straight up from the main entrance, on the left, with a sign MOZART WA Grab. Interestingly, the last person laid to rest at... More

Take tram 71 from the operahouse, it's on the way to the other cemetery (Zentralfriedhof) but get off before (St. Marx) and follow the signs to the cemetery. It is easy to follow. When you enter the cemetery, walk up the hill down the main road. Mozart is at the top of the hill to the left in a clearing.... More

Perhaps this was just me but I had to ask at least three different people to find this cemetery so here's how to do it. Catch the tram number 72 from central Vienna, the destination is given as Zentral Freidhof. Alight at St Marx stop. Cross the road and walk in the direction the tram was travelling. Soon you will...

I went and sought out the place because Mozart's true resting place is here. I was surprised how quiet the place is. No tarmac, just trees, gravestones and roots line the way. Beautiful and quiet. Had lunch opposite Mozart's grave and had plenty of time to to reflect. Didn't see anyone for an hour and well maintained. Preferred this cemetery... More

No one knows exactly where Mozart was buried in this cemetery, but they know he is here somewhere in a mass grave. They have put up a monument for him in the general vicinity. This cemetery is much smaller and not as well kept as the Zentralfreidhof but it is shady and very peaceful. The whole cemetery is being refurbished.... More

This old cementary is located now directly under the highway. The atmosphere here is amazing - if you pass the gate, you feel like 100 years ago lost in the time. Now a lot of graves will be renovated, but walk through this cementary has something mystical.

Legend has it that Mozart was buried in an unmarked pauper's grave. Not so. In the quiet St Marx Cemetery on the outskirts of Vienna is this modest grave of the composer. The little marble angel seems to be sobbing and the column on the grave seems to be broken off - a symbol of the end of the bloodline... More
