A peaceful cemetery set in an incredibly beautiful grove. An ideal place to wander around for one or two hours. Enter with respect, it is a cemetery after all. Be careful, tripadvisor shows it incorreclty on the map, it is located in Ehrenfeld!

This huge and beautifully maintained cemetary is still in use and so please be respectful. Aesthetically stunning in terms of design and architecture which range from the 19th century onwards. There is also a large memorial to the Franco-Prussian War.

Certainly worth having a wander around if you're passing, this a peaceful escape from the very busy Aachener Str that runs in to the city. I walked in to Cologne one early Spring morning from the Ameron Regent hotel just the other side of the...More
