    Brief synopsis

    The Viennese Central Cemetery is the biggest and, historically, most significant cemetery in Europe. It is not only the resting place for innumerable politicians and great musicians such as Beethoven and Johann Strauss, it is also a wildly romantic jungle, a habitat for countless animals.
