Day of the Dead Sihlfeld cemetery Zurich

Originally planned as a “central cemetery”, Sihlfeld Cemetery is located in the present-day Zürich-Wiedikon quarter. The first two crematoriums in Switzerland still stand on the site; however, they are no longer in operation, but instead are used as rooms for funeral services. Sihlfeld Cemetery is also the largest continuous green space in Zurich and is greatly valued by walkers as a peaceful and magnificent nature oasis. Besides numerous historical tombs and monuments, many graves of famous people can be found here, such as “Heidi” author Johanna Spyri and International Red Cross founder Henry Dunant. Friedhof Sihlfeld - Aemtlerstrasse 151 - 8003 Zürich - Open around the clock.
