Pay your respects to some notable figures at Friedhof Fluntern. Narrow paths pass traverse lush trees and gravestones in this hauntingly beautiful cemetery. Of particular interest to tourists is the grave of James Joyce, renowned Irish novelist and poet, whose pensive statue keeps watch over the tomb. In addition, two Nobel Peace Prize winners are buried here, Paul Karrer and Leopold Ružička. Reach the site on foot (a bit of a hike uphill) or take the tram from the city and exit at the "Zoo" stop.

Opening hours as follows: 1st March - 30th April: from 07:00 to 19:00 1st May - 31st August: from 07:00 to 20:00 1st September - 2nd November: from 07:00 to 19:00 3rd November - 28/29 February: from 08:00 to 17:00
Elegant and peaceful...Resting place of the great James Joyce.
