The cemetery of Hallstatt
The rocky grounds of the parish church became the Hallstatt cemetery. The front is assigned the Evangelist Christians. Following the rules of the cemetery there are no family graves. A grave can be re-occupied after ten years. The dead are buried horizontally; the grave verge covers only a small part of the grave. Above the graves is the sign of Christ, a cross, made of wood or wrought steel.
