Well...the old collection of the rod iron grave crosses are pretty humerous. Like for example one wrote...hier lies the virgin (theresa) whom her son buried her. Or hier lies the farmer jacob who died drinking his self-made bier. Or hier lies the village doctor and his patients too. Obviously they took death with alittle humor then. Too bad though that there are no translations. If you cannot read german than it does not make any sense stopping there.

In the cemetery museum in the hamlet Hagau (just off the A12 very near Kramsach), also called the "Merry Cemetery" you can admire forged grave crosses of the entire alpine area with quirky inscriptions. Truly bizarre but beautifully presented and very interesting. A nice pathway leads you through the cemetery where no one is deceased and humor abounds. Hans Guggenberger has restored numerous historic relics on his site in addition to his forge and stone workshop. The museum shop is well stocked with gifts and souvenirs along with postcards of the cemetery crosses. The sayings and the warm earthy wisdom of the time-honored jewelry metalwork are testimonies of the primitive folk humor in the Alpine region. Well worth a visit.
