Dürer's final resting place
Dec 2019
This is an old, yet picturesque cemetery. We came here looking for Dürer's grave, which was not easy to find. It is an unassuming grave, not different than many others.

Very famous and historically significant cemetery
Jul 2019 • Couples
The Johannisfriedhof is a famous cemetery in Nuremberg with a lot of historic epitaphs as well as significant lying tombstones. Its history dates back to the 11th century and you still can see the Saint Johannis Church which was built in the 13th century.
Beneath "normal" people some of very famous Nuremberg artists, philosophers, politicians from four centuries are buried here like Albrecht Dürer, Hans Sachs, Veit Stoß, Kevin Coyne.
Because of the many rose bushes it is also called Rosenfriedhof.

Nurnberg Cemetery Beauty
Jun 2019 • Couples
Enjoyed a great visit to Nuremberg including a visit to cemetery. Similar to graves in New Orleans which are above ground. I inquired of our guide the splendor of the flowers. He explained the graves are leased for 25 years with a commitment to also upkeep the flowers for that term also. Failure to upkeep the flowers will result in a fine.

There are many families who upkeep the flowers themselves but also providers who do it under a perpetual care arrangement.

Beautiful and very respectful to all.
Worth the trip.

I wish I had more time here. We only had a few minutes which is not nearly enough to give this unique area what it deserves.

This is most Likely the nicest cemetery in Nuremberg.
Dec 2018 • Couples
My reason for visiting this cemetery is one of my oldest and best American friends last wish was to be buried at St Johannis that his body would remain in an area of Germany he lived in for over 50 years within sight of his home which brought happiness.
He very definitely selected a lovely peaceful final resting place.

Beautiful graveyard of the middle age.
Aug 2018 • Friends
Visit one of the most beautiful graveyards of the middle age. Here you find the graves of artists like Albrecht-Dürer. A wonderful scenery with roses and old sandstone graves. Great!

Pretty even in winter

The cemetery is pretty even in winter. The summer plants have been replaced by heathers. Quiet and a place for reflection.

Cemetary Flowers
Jun 2018
This was a site that one member of our group wanted to visit. We strolled around the cemetary, just as a service was concluding in the chapel. We did walk into the chapel following the service, but didn't stay because we felt like we were not there at an appropriate time. I did appreciate seeing a cemetary with nearly every grave honored with fresh flowers.
