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!

Big cemetry. I saw just one part of it and it was too beautiful. I will go there again and check other places there.

This huge and beautifully maintained cemetary is still in use and so please be respectful. Aesthetically stunning in terms of design and architecture which range from the 19th century onwards. There is also a large memorial to the Franco-Prussian War.

My friend and I walked to this cemetery and were not impressed at all really. What I was expecting was an old-world cemetery with unique tombstones, but the layout was pretty modern with new tombstones and a few simple older ones every now and then....More
