Description: The Zentralfriedhof (Central Cemetery) is situated in the district of Simmering, Simmeringer Hauptstra▀e 230ľ244, Vienna 1110, Austria, and is the largest and most famous cemetery among Vienna's nearly 50 cemeteries.

Opened in 1874, this enormous cemetery spans 2.4 square kilometres with 3.3 million interred here. It is also second largest cemetery, after Hamburg's Ohlsdorf Cemetery (more than 4 km▓), by area and largest by number of interred in Europe.

Interred in the Zentralfriedhof are notables such as Beethoven and Schubert who were moved there in 1888, and Johannes Brahms.

The church in the centre of the cemetery is named Dr. Karl Lueger-Gedńchtniskirche. Outside the chuch the tomb of Austrian Presidents after 1945 have found their las resting place.

In addition to the Catholic section, there is a Protestant cemetery, a small Russian Orthodox burial area, and two Jewish cemeteries. Although the older of the two, established in 1863, was destroyed by the Nazis during Kristallnacht, around 60,000 graves still remain intact. Prominent burials here include those of the Rothschild family and that of the author Arthur Schnitzler. The second Jewish cemetery was built in 1917 and is still in use today.
