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 to pay a proper funeral... It is a peaceful park-like place, with small paths, trees & shrubbery. It has amazing weather-beaten tombstones, sculptures fallen to bits & 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.
