Important note about the guided tours:
Before the start of the tour, you must sign a liability statement. Entering the Jewish cemetery is fraught with danger due to the age of the facility and the structural condition. Especially through
- falling branches
- damaged tombs (borders)
- toppling gravestones
is a danger for any visitor.
We would also like to point out that special care is required when entering the area, as there are always holes in the ground and other uneven ground. When walking in the cemetery, please make sure you know what the surface is like. Leaning against gravestones is prohibited. Due to the sources of danger described above, there is a risk of serious injury to visitors. For this reason the cemetery is not open to the public. We therefore ask you to consider these sources of danger before entering the cemetery and to assess whether you can accept this risk. In particular, we draw attention to the fact that children and the elderly are at high risk due to the uneven ground and damaged grave sites. Therefore, when visiting the cemetery with children or disabled persons, there is a special obligation of attention of the accompanying persons
