Good to stroll through a cemetery such as this. The flowers in this well kept cemetery are attractive and the peacefulness is lovely. Nice to get away from the rush for awhile.

We went past this as part of a city tour. You tend not to think of cemeteries as tourist attractions. But it is the flowers as well as the architecture that make this worth a visit. Really beautiful.

I found this because of TripAdvisor. My husband was skeptical that I wanted to stop in Nuremberg just to walk through a cemetery while on our 8 day road trip through Bavaria. We are so glad we followed others' advice. It was the most beautiful cemetery that I have ever been to...and so peaceful. Residents definitely respect and honor the... More

Worth the walk to pay your respects in a quiet moment. It is truly a beautiful place and is extremely well kept. The architecture is also inspiring and thought provoking.

I'm sort of torn...should a cemetery be a tourist attraction? I understand major ones in Paris and London but should one that has no famous residents be subjected to tourists pacing up and down. Well, yes. This one definitely. I visited middle of May and there was so many flower decorations that gave it such a beautiful peaceful feel. It's... More

Take walk from the town wall along the river pegnitz and make a turn up the hill after about 1km from the city wall. The Johannis Friedhof behind the Hesperiden Garden (wonderful small baroque garden with a nice coffee shop and relaxing atmosphere). The cemetery is very romantic. Try to search the Dürer funeral place...

Need to get out of the city? This very old cemetery is just a few short blocks from the Altstadt, and you're suddenly walking amongst a very old well maintained sea of stone and flowers. It's a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the city. I'm impressed with how differently it is decorated and maintained from most other... More

There is a very pleasant walk from the old town along the river towards this cemetery. The display of summer flowering plants in pots was outstanding - see photo. If you want to escape the crowds or have time to spare take full advantage of this free attraction. The church is simple and has old paintings and balconies at two... More
