We were shown the cemetery on our tour with our German friends and told a lot about it of why the stones and notes of paper had been left on the graves. Well worth a visit.

Not far from the cathedral, this is another must see spot in Worms. One grave dates to the 11th century, 1054!

Go see it. It is moving. We could only see it from outside the gate. It is a pilgrimage kind of place. Not visited a lot per a local.
