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!

Such an interesting cemetery, but do your homework first or you'll miss out. There are guides who can be hired to ensure you get the most out of your visit

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.
