How can one say a cemetery is beautiful, but this one is really lovely. Roses were in abundance on top of the graves and it was a very special visit. I would highly recommend spending time in here and reflecting on the past.

The place is very quite and beautiful. It has a personal touch and you have to see how different people see their lost ones. There are a lot of flowers thrown everywhere. And there are a lot of sensational words on each stone.

Perhaps we are quirky but we have visited quite a few cemeteries on our travels. When our Nuremberg tour guide recommended the Johannisfriedhof and we saw it had been rated Germany's most beautiful cemetery we had to go and look. The walk from the old...More

Of course all cemeteries are peaceful, but this is special as it is an old one. Take your time and walk by find out who is here and enjoy the silence
