St. Marx Cemetery is the place where once poor Mozart was thrown into a mass grave (so it’s said) as there was no money for to pay a proper funeral. But you are not here to visit the vanished mass graves of former times but this neat and peaceful park-like place, with small paths, trees and shrubbery.
The cemetery has amazing weather-beaten tombstones, sculptures fallen to bits and pieces, epigrams worn off by the ravages of time.
If you can read German you will realize that on such a bourgeois cemetery it was a very important thing to show the profession of the deceased on the tombstone – a brewer, a landlord, a cigarette shop owner, etc..
This is a beautiful, quiet spot for a stroll, especially in snowy winter times. In autumn all trees turn gold and red.
