If you enjoy walking around graves, you will enjoy the different ornamentation and flowers. It looks like the graves are very old however some are as new as 2014.

What a beautiful cemetery. All the tombs are above ground with beautiful flowers sitting in pots everywhere. A very pretty church also sits on the grounds.

Nurnberg city centre is not very big and if you are accustomed to walk around big cities, then you will find that this cemetery, although said to be outside the city centre, is not such a long walk. It is worth a visit on a sunny day as the graves are all beautifully decorated with flowers.

Peaceful place, lots of flowers in the graves and old tombs, it's remarkable that most of the tombs have fresh flowers. Life is short to spend it writing reviews of graveyards, I will go and watch TV.

With colorful blooming flowers on most graves and two picturesque chapels, this is a very pretty old cemetery where several famous people, including Albrecht Dürer, are buried. Locals come to water the flowers on the graves of their loved ones. We learned that some of the graves in the historical area have not been kept up and are now available.

If you're a fan of graveyards (and who isn't!!) then you'll enjoy walking around the tranquil paths of this beautiful ground. A lot of care and attention is clearly spent maintaining the area, which features some celebrity plots, such as that of Albrecht Dürer. I often come here to relax, and see tourists trampling around and using flash photography in... More

We had visited the Kaiserburg and strolled had a few beers nearby, then strolled through the graveyard, some beautiful flowers, fantastic workmanship on the gravestones, did not feel macabre at all, just nice to see a place so well kept and looked after and be out of the hustle and bustle.

Anselm Feuerbach(1881) ( sculptor) and Veit Stoss(1533) (sculptor) are others buried here. Follow the signs and you will discover their final resting place. The cemetery dates back to the 10th/11th century and between 1518... More

We came across this gem of a place from a travel guide on Germany. We were staying for one night at a nearby hotel and read about it. It is a very peaceful place to visit and intriguing too. All the box tombs, most with colourful flowers on top really make this stand out from other graveyards. Many have quite... More
