Vienna Central CemeteryThe Vienna Central Cemetery is actually one of the largest cemeteries in the world. Going to a graveyard isn’t exactly the first thing that comes to mind when you travel to a new city, but there’s something grimly fascinating about wandering around a cemetery so large.

But of course, the biggest reason to go here is for the very notable people who are buried here.  Beethoven, for one.

Franz Schubert.

And several others, including, randomly, Falco.  Yeah, the Rock Me Amadeus guy.

There’s also some other stuff to see as you wander around, including a few monuments, such as this one to fallen soldiers.

And, my favourite part, easily the most badass grave that I’ve ever seen (I wish I had taken a better photo.  You don’t really get a good sense of it, but the statue of the kneeling knight was huge and impressively detailed).
