Vienna Danube River burial

A flowing cycle

With this kind of natural burial, the ashes are placed in a particular type of urn and then given to the water. The material will dissolve after a little time, allowing the ashes to be swept away by the natural water currents. This kind of funeral is also possible in Austrian rivers such as the Danube.


Many people find this type of funeral especially comforting owing to the close connection between the element of water and the concept of eternal freedom.


Each burial in the Lower Austrian section of the Danube requires a burial permit from the relevant district, which we will be pleased to obtain on your behalf.
