|Bobb Edwards||Beethoven/Schubert Original Graves|
The former Währinger Friedhof, the first burial place of Beethoven and Schubert, is now Schubert Park in the Vienna suburb of Währing. It is open to the public. The two composers' original tombs can be found next to the East wall, preserved as they were nearly 200 years ago. You'll also see the original cemetery gate, where Grillparzer delivered his famous funeral speech for Beethoven. Schubert Park is on the Währingerstrasse and you can get there on trams nos. 40 and 41.
Hope this helps.
