Very close to the centre of Linz lies one of the oldest cemeteries in Upper Austria: the St. Barbara cemetery. Here people of all religions find their last resting place.
The St. Barbara cemetery was built at the end of the 18th century at its present location. Over the centuries the cemetery area could be extended to 12 hectares, today there are about 20,000 grave places.
The careful, natural design with thousands of trees, shrubs and hedges makes it a retreat all year round in the middle of the city, a true park of silence, memory and hope.
The simple, bright farewell rooms offer a dignified, respectfully sensitive setting for different and individual farewell ceremonies.
In addition to the "classic" row grave, there are many other graves for coffin and urn burial - from the traditional wall grave to the burial of the urn under the family tree.
The cemetery is owned and managed by the St. Barbara Gottesackerstiftung.
