The beautiful Friedhof Ohlsdorf or 'Ohlsdorf Cemetery' covers an area of 400 hectares and is not only Hamburg's biggest park, but also the world's biggest cemetery. Many German and European celebrities have been buried here and the cemetery is filled with their tombstones and statues. You can also explore the twelve chapels, three museums and see the graves of soldiers from over 20 different nations. The lake and meadows with numerous sculptures and impressive mausoleums make Ohlsdorf Cemetery much more than just a graveyard. One of the museums boasts of remarkable old tombstones and an interesting documentary on death and dying. Please refer to the website for the opening hours.
