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.
