I happened to visit here on a wet, rainy, misty, foggy day and it was a perfect setting. I slushed through the muddy grounds and could see some of the huge headstones and markers peeking through the thick fog. I could hear voices of other visitors in the foggy distance which increased the eeriness of my visit. I would certainly... More

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.

It took me a few minutes to find it, got off at the wrong stop silly me, but once I did i was amazed. It looks larger on a map, so I thought that I wouldn't be able to make my way around the whole thing, but was pleasantly surprised that there was so much to see, but you were... More

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 and green and beautiful in there. I would recommend more than an hour for this... 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.

You can visit anytime, which would be a three star attraction....visiting with a tour in September, when the have the "Tag des Friedhofs" is really worth four or maybe five stars. Lots of the mausoleums are locked the other 364 days but on this day you can visit and see the inside of these elegant structures which house the tomb... More

Rating a cemetery sounds a bit weird. ;-) But I like to visit them when travelling abroad. The Frankfurter Hauptfriedhof actually looks more like a park. Never seen a cemetery that green, that forested. Elsewhere tropical sun, white gravestones and a lack of trees burn and dazzle often my eyes. But here, this wasn't the case at all. The memorial...
