    Our guide, Stefan, was polite and helpful and especially attentive to me as the only native English speaker in a group of native German Speakers. I had a few questions, and he checked with me several times to see if I was ok! To be honest, as a Doctor of Music with decent facility in German, I may have been better off on my own since there are so many other famous musicians' graves to visit than the ones we stopped at - the big ones, like Beethoven, Schubert, and Brahms. Not to mention countless others in the arts. Next time I'll get a written guide and snoop around by myself! Still, Stefan was full of lots of interesting information and humorous quips!

    Wir haben eine private Führung für fünf Personen gebucht und sie war jeden Euro wert. Wir waren begeistert von den vielen kleinen und großen Geschichten rund um den Zentralfriedhof. Unser Guide hat unsere Erwartungen übertroffen. Er ist unheimlich sympathisch und war mit sehr viel Freude und Wissen ein toller Erzähler.Wir nehmen sehr viel mit und behalten die Stunden in sehr guter Erinnerung. Vielen Dank und Baba

    War ne sehr schöne, winterliche Runde über den Zentralfriedhof, genauer gesagt entlang der Ehrengräber. Von Curd & Udo Jürgens über Beethoven, die Musikerdynastie Strauss bis hin zu Falco, die Promidichte ist hier einmalig. Gerne nochmal, dann im Sommer.
