Alter Friedhof (Old Cemetery)

Alter Friedhof (Old Cemetery) Review

This ornate, leafy cemetery is the resting place of many of the country's most celebrated sons and daughters. Look for the tomb of composer Robert Schumann (1810–56) and his wife, Clara, also a composer and accomplished pianist. To reach the cemetery from the main train station, follow Quantiusstrasse west, parallel to the tracks until it becomes Herwarthstrasse; before the street curves to the left, turning into Endenicherstrasse, take the underpass below the railroad line. You'll then be on Thomastrasse, which borders the cemetery.
