Unfortunately, the cemetery was closed during my visit because of a holiday. Nevertheless, I could take a look from the forecourt over the gravestones. Very interesting the many historical tombstones. I would like to have looked at these close up too.

As already written above a worth seeing Judenfriedof, Saturdays (Sabat) closed. Unfortunately, when I was there, the water was turned off, when you walk out of a Jewish cemetery you wash your hands normally. If you look, the tombs are all oriented towards Jerusalem.

The old Jewish cemetery "Heiliger Sand" has been of great importance for Jews worldwide until today. Numerous influential Jewish scholars and rabbis were buried here. The oldest tombstones date from 1058/59 and thus document the first great heyday of the Jewish community in Worms, which can be traced back to around 1000. The "Holy Sand" is the oldest "in situ" preserved Jewish cemetery in Europe! Admission is free !
April to September: Sunday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
October to March: Sunday-Friday 8 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.
Closed on Saturday and on Jewish holidays
Short-term changes / closings are possible at any time; Details on the notice board at the Jewish cemetery or at worms.de
Unfortunately currently closed due to CV. Nevertheless, you can perhaps guess from the photos what a special atmosphere there is.
