Vienna's hidden cemeteries # 2022

...looking for Viennas hidden cemeteries

Many public squares and parks in today's Vienna were once cemeteries. The most prominent example of this is Stephansplatz. But there are also many unplanned final resting places in the city, which has been shaken by so many wars and crises: under the Volksgarten, for example, where one of the decisive battles of the Ottoman siege took place, or on Albertinaplatz, where at the end of the Second World War the Philipphof sheltered dozens of people seeking refuge spilled in the basement.

Many of these dead still lie exactly where fate buried them. Many official cemeteries from that time were abandonded, the graves were not reburied, but simply cleared on the surface.

In this fascinating new production "Heritage Austria" embarks on a search for Vienna's hidden cemeteries with ground -radar and scientific support.
