Vienna’s Central Cemetery (Zentralfriedhof) is much more than Europe’s second largest graveyard. It is a cultural highlight of Vienna’s rich history. But it is also home to an abundant variety of nature and wildlife! Starting in May 2019, WIENER WILDNIS will take you into a jungle of overgrown gravestones and hidden relics. With a little luck, we will find foxes, songbirds, birds of prey  or even deer in a mysthical and peaceful setting, right out of a movie set...

Bring your cameras or binoculars or just your sharp eyes and come along! The cemetery was founded in 1874 and covers an area of almost 500 acres. So there is plenty of space for all kinds and sizes of wildlife to hide between trees and gravestones. Cemeteries are known to be refuges for animals but the Central Cemetery is one of a kind. For a good two hours we will take you on an entertaining safari. Although there is no guarantee what exactly we will be seeing (it depends on daytime and season), we can almost guarantee you some wild surprises!
