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 love old cemeteries, this is perfect for you. We had very limited time, but still enjoyed walking around snapping pictures. The headstones were very neat. Some have split and are leaning on the bases, so that made for some good pictures. It's lush...More

If you like cementaries, this one is good. Huge, with some fancy graves. Peaceful. It's located not far away from the city centre.
