We don’t make a habit of visiting graveyards but are happy we made an exception for Alter Friedhof. It is a lovely, quiet spot in a bustling city, fairly well maintained for a very old spot (though folks are still being buried in the space)....More

Quiet graveyard (ok, no surprise here) with a collection of stonegraves covering the last 200+ years. Makes you contemplate how it all ends and walk over to the Altstadt, have some beer and contemplate some more.

There is an APP "Wo sie liegen". Beethoven`s mother`s grave is worth a visit. You will receive an useful plan when you ask at the graveyard-office.
