What a Cemetery Should Be
Jun 2019 • Solo
I had hear that visiting the old cemetery would be special, it was.

You walk in, just to the left of the Congress Hall, and immediately you sense a peaceful feeling. It’s strange to me given the troubles this area has seen and the loses in too many conflicts but it really is a peaceful place to wander and be by yourself.

The views to the South of the valley and mountains, covered with a blanket of mist, are spectacular. I imagine they would be in any season, even winter’s snow.

Every, grave and memorial was lovingly looked after. Most had fresh flowering plants with not 1 weed visible. The families of the departed truly care and remember.

We went in April. Every grave had beautiful spring flowers planted on them. It was wonderful to walk around this sacred place.

A Beautiful slice of History
Dec 2018
We have visited Berchtesgaden many times and visit the Old Cemetary every time. Each visit reveals another look at the history of the area. The cemetery is especially beautiful during the Christmas holidays when the graves are decorated and lit with candles in the small evergreen trees. Also, on New years Eve the walkway behind the cemetery is a great place to watch the fireworks over the valley!

Perfectly maintained
Dec 2018 • Couples
No vandalism here, well looked after by the locals, unlike the U K. Sublime serenity, each headstone perfectly manicured.Obviously a lot of history especially from the war, so sad but poignant.

Peaceful and Sobering Reminder
Jul 2018 • Couples
We forget that there are two sides to each story and in conflicts of war people die on both sides. It is a reminder that war is not a means to an end. Area was well maintain with numerous family plots that extend hundreds of years. The most sobering was the wall of rememberance for soldiers that had not returned during various conflicts.

The locals certainly tend this graveyard which if it were in Britain would be overgrown neglected with signs of vandalism.There are fresh flowers and candles on many graves some actively tendered.If your into history you will find soldiers of both world wars and the grave of Tony Kurz who died on a 1936 attempt of the Eiger

Interesting graves

Visited to find the grave of Toni Kurz who tragically died while attempting a climb of the North face of the Eiger in 1936.

Also saw the grave of Dietrich Eckart who was Hitler"s mentor in the 1920's.

If you are a WWII buff this is a place to visit!
Apr 2018
I love the way the German's eulogize their loved ones, especially their lost sons and daughter's due to WWII.

Very much worth the visit! Take flowers! This will impact you!

Serenity and History here
May 2017 • Couples
I love Berchtesgaden. I am a history buff and this area is steeped in history and beauty. This cemetery is very well kept by the families. It has military personel from WW1 and WW2. I had a peaceful time reading headstones and plackards, i would suggest this cemetery to anyone visiting this area.
