Cemetery of Mennonites families (Protestant group, Christian Anabaptist denominations, the oldest still existing Baptist Church) and their descendants who since 19th century lived on the farms between present Andernach and boroughs Eich and Kell. In 1827 acquisition of the Pönterhof and the Krayer Hof by Mennonites from Neuwied. Even when the last remaining Members of this Mennonite religion died in 1943 the cemetery is maintained by their descendants, who belong to the Evangelical parish of Andernach. Milestone, obelisk, 19th century waysideshrine (inscripted 1840 but is most likely older). PS, the cemetery is locked, so no entrance, but can be seen from the gate as well as from the ramparts.
