Jewish Cemetery

Behind a nondescript door in the town wall at the end of the Glockengiesser Straße lies the Jewish cemetery. With tombstones dating back to the early 17th century it documents the continuity of Jewish life in our town, which came to an end with the expulsion and extermination under the Nazis.

Today the remaining 145 gravestones are outstanding documents of Jewish burial custom, the cemetery itself is an important monument of history which has been forgotten and suppressed to a great extent. Note: Head covering for male visitors is required. (a hat or yarmulke)

Opening Hours:

Open only during a guided tour.
