Friedhof Sihlfeld

Aemtlerstrasse 151
8003 Zürich

Wherever people live, they unfortunately also pass away. And what do Red Cross founder Henri Dunant, constructive painter Richard Paul Lohse and writers Hugo Loetscher, Gottfried Keller and Johanna Spyri – the creator of “Heidi” – have in common? They have all found their last resting place in the Sihlfeld cemetery in Zurich Wiedikon. Opened in 1877, it is with 288,000 m² not only the largest cemetery in the city but also the largest park in Zurich – making it something like the little brother of the famous Vienna Central Cemetery. In the middle of the Kreis 3 district. Rest in peace? Rest in Sihlfeld.
