The gravestones and tombs are works of art, modern and classical. The cemetery is quiet and peaceful and beautifully laid out. There is a info board near the entrance to show you where the 'famous' graves are. Very well maintained and immaculate in the Swiss...More

When friends and family visit this is one of the places I take them. It's just an interesting place to visit. Not somewhere you'd spend hours though.

The place is just around the corner of Zurich ZOO. It's quite high but you dont have a view to the city from here. The cementry is very quiet and small but nice. You can also see a sculpture of James Joyce above his grave.

I had come to see the grave of James Joyce. I had long wished to visit. There are two ways to reach Fluntern Cemetery, by tram #6 or by Funicular from Susenbergstrasse, then a slow hike uphill past some remarkable homes through a neighborhood few...More
