The FriedWald Clam burial site offers a naturally comforting alternative to the traditional cemetery. In the FriedWald, the ashes of the deceased are buried in biodegradable urns under trees. The burial site is labelled with a small name plaque on the tree.
There is no grave maintenance in FriedWald Clam; nature takes care of it here. This means that grave decorations are not permitted in FriedWald Clam - gravestones, flower arrangements and candles do not fit in with the natural forest landscape. Wild flowers, colourful foliage, ferns, mosses and snow decorate the graves under the trees according to the season. In this way, they become individual places of remembrance and commemoration.
Around 50 kilometres south-east of Linz, in the market town of Klam near Grein, the Clam Cemetery Forest surrounds the medieval Clam Castle. The wooded area adjacent to the romantic Klam Gorge offers people a final resting place under a tree. The breathtaking view across the cemetery forest to the castle and the high peaks of the Alps makes the Clam cemetery forest a very special place to say goodbye and find eternal peace.
Since 30 September 2016, it has been possible to purchase a tree or place for the final resting place in the Clam cemetery forest. Here, the ashes of the deceased are buried in biodegradable urns under trees. The cemetery forest is located on a high plateau covering an area of 5.8 hectares. From here, the view stretches across the Danube valley as far as Styria. On the opposite plateau lies the medieval Clam Castle, with the Clam stream flowing in the gorge in between. The dramatic landscape is part of the Natura 2000 protected area and is home to rare animal species. Well-developed footpaths and easily accessible paths make it easy to visit the Clam cemetery forest. The medieval castle, first mentioned in 1149, is still a living piece of history that is well worth a visit.
The Clam stream flows through the gorge.
Wonderful view over the forest to the medieval Clam Castle, with various tree species to choose from: Beech, oak, hornbeam, fir, larch, maple, chestnut, pine or walnut. Carl Philip Clam describes the place of worship in the Clam Cemetery Forest as a place of power. Each burial tree is marked with a tree number - free trees are marked with a coloured ribbon.
