The Forest Cemetery is the quiet area of Vienna’s Central Cemetery. It was opened in May of 2009.
The entrance was designed as a joint memorial for all those buried here. The two steel sculptures were inspired by trees. The so-called "name tree" bears as inscription the names of the dead, with their date of birth and death. Their friends and relatives can place lighted candles on the “lantern tree”. Of the approximately 200 trees located at the 10.000-square-metre- large site, 36 were selected for use as urn interments. The trees, chiefly ash and maple, are 40 to 60 years old. Each of the 36 trees is encircled by 12 burial sites, within each is room for two urns.
