I just visited St. Ruprecht cemetery in Klagenfurt, Austria. A sign at the locked entrance gives a phone number that is the same number that was disconnected. I called the Cemetery Office. The new contact person is Arnulf Rainer; and his number is (463) 537-2420. He has the keys. Source: Anonymous [December 2005]
