Number of people interred[edit]

the german official page says 330 000 interred, not 3 million 83.129.188.175 20:42, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

The official website states 330 000 tombs. However it continues that more people are buried there than the number of inhabitants of Vienna. Therefore 3 million seem to be conceivable. Gugganij 20:23, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Title of the article[edit]

Maybe the title of this article is a bit unspecific. The German "Zentralfreidhof" just means "central cemetry". There are many cemetries with this name, see Zentralfriedhof in the German Wikipedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Murjek (talkcontribs) 12:42, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

There is no ambiguity in "Zentralfriedhof" as the title for this article in the English Wikipedia. The one in Vienna is the obvious primary meaning. The article may need a hatnote for the currently only other such named cemetery, Zentralfriedhof Friedrichsfelde. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 12:52, 14 May 2010 (UTC)


But Zentralfriedhof outside Vienna is the most well-known graveyard or cemetary in the world today. When planned Vienna was the second biggest city on the European continent (only Paris were a little more popoulus) It was (in some degree together with Budapest) was the center of the Donau-monarchy and had more then 2 million habitants before Berlin. Today's Austria is just 10% of what it was before "the great war" (WW1) and concisted of todays Austria and Hungary, south Tyrol in todays Italy, Transsylvania of today's Romania (which was smaller before 1918), the whole Tjeck rep, Slovakian rep., Slovenian rep., Croatian rep. Vojvodina in nothern Serbia, Bosnia-Hercegovina, southeast Poland - Galizia(incl. Krakow), parts of Belarus and Ukraine - and before 1871 (when Germany became a nation) the Austrian-Hungarian Empire was the greatest in Europe (only Russia excluded).
Zentralfriedhof, Vienna is far more well-known then any other cemetary with the same name. And I would say it's the most famous graveyard in the world, because of it's size and the number of celebreties resting there. Well ahead of both Arlington and the cemetaries of New Orleans and Montparnasse at Paris. AviatorPontus (talk) 02:57, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
