Oldest Jewish cemetery in Europe with approx. 2500 graves. The oldest tombstone dates from 1058/1059 and thus documents the first great heyday of the Jewish community in Worms, which has been documented since around the year 1000. From the younger part of the cemetery you have a very impressive cathedral view, the so-called "Buber-Blick". Thanks to the Synagogue Foundation of 1034 and the place of many rabbis since the 11th century, the Worms community, together with those of Mainz and Speyer, formed the SCHUM cities. "Schum" is derived from the Hebrew initials of the names of the three communities.
The cemetery is closed on Jewish holidays and on Saturdays. A visit to the forecourt is possible.
Further closing days: Good Friday, 24. - 26.12. as well as 31.12.
Male visitors are asked to enter the Jewish cemetery only with a hat.
The paths of the older part of the cemetery are barrier-free and accessible by pushchair or rollator (in dry weather).
Public tours: Fridays at 11am from April to November, more information here .
