THE hauptfriedhof was just across the street from our hotel so we said we would have a look and was very surprised the Main building was riddled with bullet holes and the grave yard was strangely beautiful walking around it was so peacefully but we...More

I visited Hauptfriedhof on a Monday afternoon when everything else was closed. The cemetery is huge, and there's lots of monuments and memorials to explore. I really enjoyed walking along the overgrown pathways and looking at all of the old tombstones. I suppose it's a...More

I happened to visit here on a wet, rainy, misty, foggy day and it was a perfect setting. I slushed through the muddy grounds and could see some of the huge headstones and markers peeking through the thick fog. I could hear voices of other...More

The Frankfurt main cemetery is a very most beautiful place and probably the largest city parks with huge trees and large open spaces. Memorial for the victims of both world wars is impressive and produces a very special effect when I entered the monument.

If you like cementaries, this one is good. Huge, with some fancy graves. Peaceful. It's located not far away from the city centre.

Rating a cemetery sounds a bit weird. ;-) But I like to visit them when travelling abroad. The Frankfurter Hauptfriedhof actually looks more like a park. Never seen a cemetery that green, that forested. Elsewhere tropical sun, white gravestones and a lack of trees burn...More
