Visiting the Melaten-Friedhof cemetary was an experience like never before. There was beauty in the silence. Arrays of tombs lined up from different time periods(some as old as 17th century) gave a very unique feeling. Such was the vibe of the place that we would...More

There wasn't anything special about it. It was quiet in the middle of the city and nice enough. I took a nap on a bench which was quite pleasant.

A quiet location with a lot of great tombs from baronial dynasties. Perfect for a relaxing walk on sundays.

A peaceful cemetery set in an incredibly beautiful grove. An ideal place to wander around for one or two hours. Enter with respect, it is a cemetery after all. Be careful, tripadvisor shows it incorreclty on the map, it is located in Ehrenfeld!

It was quite strange for me when locals took me and my baby for a stroll through this cementary. I was afraid I would be disrespecting but it was quite the opposite. People walk though the cementery all day with kids and strollers, even runners....More
