Well to write a review on the cemetery even the old one is not the thing I would be doing a lot, but the old Jewish Cemetery is a bit of an outsider. First of all it is still not clear for me how the...More

During your visit in Worms you should visit the Jewish cemetery. Get in touch with the burial culture of Jewish people in Europe. A place to remeber especially in times of antisemitism.

A very old cemetery, going back to 1059 when the first Jews were buried here . Burial stopped 1911 . Something like 2500 tombstones in the old and new sections together. Very nice . Admission free . Closed Saturdays and Jewish holidays.

We were shown the cemetery on our tour with our German friends and told a lot about it of why the stones and notes of paper had been left on the graves. Well worth a visit.

Every time I visit this site, I'm sorry not to have enough time to stay longer and try to decipher the many inscriptions on the graves. The gravestones are mostly damaged by water and wind, so that you can only partly read the inscriptions. The...More

I would not have expected the oldest Jewish cemetery in Europe in the heart of Germany, especially one that was undamaged by the ravages of the second World War, and is a quiet oasis quite near the city center. But Worms has surprised me. Explanatory...More
