|Schubert's memorial at the former Wahringer Friedhof. It was dedicated in 1830. The upper inscription reads, "In the year 1828 Franz Schubert was buried at this site, and on 22 September 1888 his remains were exhumed and transferred to the Centralfriedhof". The bronze bust of the composer was created by Joseph Dialer. Below is the tomb's original inscription, with Grillparzer's famous epitaph: "The Art Of Music Buried Here A Rich Treasure, But Even Finer Hopes. Franz Schubert Lies Here. Born On 31 January 1797. Died On 19 November 1828. 31 Years Old".|
