Lonely Planet review

This ‘Cemetery of the Nameless’, situated on the outskirts of Vienna alongside the Danube, was established in 1900 by volunteers to bury the grey, unknown dead (often suicides or accident victims) who washed up on the shores of the blue Danube. Fans of the film Before Sunrise will recognise it as one of the places where the two protagonists Céline and Jesse spend time before destiny takes them to other places, other callings.
