Tirol Cemetery Museum

Kramsach

You’ll search in vain for “Rest in Peace” and similar grave inscriptions at the Cemetery Museum in Kramsach, because death was not always a gentle and reverent affair in centuries gone by. Rather, people often tried to comfort themselves after a tragic loss with rumbustious sayings. The world’s only collection of grave and tombstone inscriptions and shrine sayings by Kramsach-based blacksmith Hans Guggenberger provides evidence of how cunningly the vernacular combined grief with humour. Most of the collection originates in the 19th century and includes the careers of many (un)blessed deceased, such as: “Here lies Martin Krug, who children, wife and organ struck.” By the way, no one is buried here!
