There are some lovely trees, including ginkgo, and rhododendrons up to 4 metres high. You...More

One of the most beautiful cemeteries I've seen. It's more like a park with lots of flowers, if you visit at springtime. There's a lake and a beautiful building in the middle of the cemetery, with a Mediterranean atmosphere. It's located near the Volkerschlachtdenkmal.
Although it might sound a bit creepy to visit a cemetery just for tourism this one actually worths it.
Since it's next to the Volkerschlachtdenkmal it is a very good option to combine both visits in one shot.
