The cemetery is located on Kalvarska Street on an isolated suburban hillside with no sign, but Jewish symbols on wall or gate. Reached by turning directly off a public road, access is open to all via a masonry wall and locking gate. The cemetery has 500-5000 18th-20th century marble, granite, limestone, and sandstone flat shaped tombstones (some with carved relief decorations), finely smoothed and inscribed stones, or double tombstones are in original locations. Inscriptions are German and Hebrew. The site is Jewish cemetery only. Adjacent properties are residential. Occasionally, private visitors stop. Restoration included clearing vegetation and fixing of gate and walls. Occasionally, individuals clean and clear the site. Within the cemetery is a pre-burial house. Erosion is a moderate threat. Planned development is a minor threat.
