    Dorotheenstadt Cemetery is a lovely oasis of green and quiet in the middle of Berlin. (the closest U Bahn station is Naturkunde-Museum on line 6.) The graves of famous and un-famous alike are here: Bertolt Brecht, Hegel, Fichte, Marcuse. it is still in active use for burials but many of the graves pre-date the Second World War and a good number are from the nineteenth-century. It seems to be a popular resting-place for theatrical folk.

    From here it is a short walk to the Berlin Wall memorials, documentation centre, etc on Bernauer-strasse.

    If you are interested in the Jewish history of Berlin and the ritual how Jewish people are buried. The important points of their lives and manners which are written in stone some of them already 150 years ago, this is the place you need to visit. We were absolutely impressed of the spirit of this place.

    Not much left to see but it has an atmosphere which can be evoked with little imagination. The story of the graveyard, its inhabitants and its division by the Berlin Wall is a microcosm of the wider history of nineteenth and twentieth century Germany. Anyone with an imagination and with a keen interest in nineteenth and twentieth century military history shouldn't miss it.

    We were part of a Bomber Command Tour of Europe and visited the cemetary at the end of April. As always the Commonwealth War Graves maintain this immaculate cemetary and it is a beautiful and serene place to visit. Some of the Dambusters are buried here and there is also a "Great Escaper" from Stalug Luft III Flying Officer D Street, gravestones can be found.

    The book of rememberance can be signed in the gated entrance area and all the graves are listed alphabetically and state the plot within the cemetary.

    The resting place of the Brothers Grimm and Max Bruch, among others. A tranquil spot to wander around, with a little cafe at the entrance. Many interesting gravestones and plots.

    Being someone who likes to just walk around enjoying the views and looking at things, this was totally a neat place to stumble over the first day.

    Very nice, green and peaceful burial ground, where many well known Germans have been laid to rest, including Marlene Dietrich, star of the Blue Angel, honoured by the city of Berlin with a so-called Ehren Grabe. It's a humble little plot, but all the more lovely for its down-to-earthness. The rest of the yard is lovely, quiet, green, with little cross paths leading in all directions. Benches all around. As well as water wells for watering the flowers and greens. Nice.

    Overgrown, but lovely in its wildness, headstones hidden between the weeds, sometimes trees grow on top of graves. The whole thing resembles a bit a nature cemetary. Perhaps in a century it will be. Good and restful experience.
