Touring the cemeteries of Vienna is easy with the bigger ones - there are even tour guides available for the Zentralfriedhof.

Vienna is not the only place with extensive cemeteries that are full with elaborate tombs: Mini-versions of the Zentralfriedhof can be found in Salzburg or Graz; Salzburg has two very interesting cemeteries, an ancient one of the Monastery St. Peter, and a mostly 19th century one in the courtyard of Baroque cloisters - St. Sebastian.

For typical countryside cemeteries, I recommend Western Austria - the villages of the Zillertal Valley in Tyrol, or Alpbach, where Nobel laureate Erwin Schrödinger is buried.
