“Big, peaceful cementary”
Review of Hauptfriedhof

If you like cementaries, this one is good.
Huge, with some fancy graves. Peaceful.
It's located not far away from the city centre.

You can visit anytime, which would be a three star attraction....visiting with a tour in September, when the have the "Tag des Friedhofs" is really worth four or maybe five stars. Lots of the mausoleums are locked the other 364 days but on this day you can visit and see the inside of these elegant structures which house the tomb of, for example, the mistress (and later second wife) of Wilhelm, the Prince of Hessen. Lots of these structures are excellent examples of the various architectural styles of the last two centuries, and there are lots of famous people buried there as well (including a monument to the Hindenburg).

Rating a cemetery sounds a bit weird. ;-) But I like to visit them when travelling abroad. The Frankfurter Hauptfriedhof actually looks more like a park. Never seen a cemetery that green, that forested. Elsewhere tropical sun, white gravestones and a lack of trees burn and dazzle often my eyes. But here, this wasn't the case at all. The memorial for the victims of both world wars is impressive and produces a very special sound effect when I entered the round monument. Another memorial worth looking for is the one for the victims of the Hindenburg LZ 129 disaster in Lakehurst.
