Find peace on a forest cementery
More and more people are looking beyond the traditional cemetery and choosing alternative and more nature-oriented burial options. A natural burial is a wonderful alternative to conventional or religious funeral rituals, and a way to express a connection to nature and enjoy a particularly loving and personalised farewell.
In addition, a grave site in a forest cemetery is easier for the family, who will not be burdened with the expense of caring for the grave.
We are happy to help!
We provide compassionate support in planning your natural burial while ensuring you experience an individual, meaningful and respectful farewell, no matter which type of natural burial you choose.
Tree burial: rest in peace surrounded by nature
Burial in a forest cemetery is known as tree burial.
In collaboration with various partners we also offer alternative options, including burial at sea, burial in the Danube, mountain burial, air burial or spreading of the ashes. All these forms of burial are possible following the incineration of the deceased, and can be arranged with a very personal touch.
Arrange a personal consultation
If you have any further questions about a natural burial, please contact us. We will be happy to advise you of the various options for planning a natural burial, either over the telephone or in one of our branch offices.

Alternative funeral types
An entombment in Vienna is very similar to a burial. It simply involves a stone-walled room rather than an earthen grave. The casket is also different – the casket will be either made from or lined with metal and must be completely airtight.
Urn at home
Many people find it easier to process their grief if they are able to remain close to the deceased, even after their death. In this case, you have the option of avoiding a funeral at the cemetery and keeping the urn at your home.
Infants who die during pregnancy or at birth are known as “angel babies”. We will assist if you wish to hold a funeral ceremony in Vienna for an angel baby, and we will keep the expenses of such a ceremony to a minimum.
