Nice quite spot
Nov 2020
Set at the end of a very bumpy gravel road this is your average small cemetery. There is nothing to particularly recommend it, but it is well maintained and has a great view out over the grassland reserve. We did some interesting birding here.

Unexpectedly lovely

The cemetery is the first stop "outside" Haenertsburg on the Louis Changuion Trail which starts in the village. And, you need to really put in some effort to climb up here. It's just a bit steep.

And, it's worth a stop and browse when on the trail as it's incredibly peaceful and beautiful.

Walk up if you can - you'll feel fulfilled when you do!

Beautiful views but you need a 4x4 to reach it!
Dec 2019
If cemeteries can be considered beautiful, this one qualifies. Its green allover and provides for beautiful views over the valley. Haenertsburg is a very small town and maintaining the road to the cemetery surely is not a priority. If you have a 4x4, you can make the trip. The cemetery is vandalized from time to time but still worth a visit despite the road condition.

Breath taking views and ❤️

Well worth a visit. The view is breath taking and the tomb stones are well worth it. Clean and tidy. Picnic tables available in the area between the cemetery and the forest. Please remember to use the bins.

Historic cemetary
Jun 2019 • Couples
This cemetery is on top of a hill outside the village with a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains and forrests.
The oldest graves are from the 19th century. Sadly the old gravestones are so weathered that one cannot read the names anymore.

Worth a visit

Did this just because. Turned out to be more. Walking between graves that are this old does something to a regular afternoon - it adds some perspective.

Stunning views, peaceful surroundings

The cemetery is on the +-10km hiking route that starts in Haenertsburg and snakes round the nearby mountains and forests. You'll need to brave a long, gradual climb on the hiking route or a pothole riddled drive up the road to get there, but it is definitely worth it. It is so tranquil, clean and quiet with one of the best views in the area. A marker in commemoration to the Duke of Atholl, the towns most famous late resident, is at the entrance of the cememtery's pedestrian gate.

"nice view"
Nov 2017 • Couples
Took us a while to find the cemetery but finally we were succesfull after asking some locals. From the cemetery you get a nice view over the valley from a nice and well maintained cemetery with some benches where you can enjoy the peace and quietness. It is also a good place to have pick-nick at the front of the cemetery.
