The beautiful 400-hectare park cemetery at Ohldorf has 12 chapels and a little museum in its well-kept grounds. The museum is solely dedicated to 'crossing over' and all things related to death- however strange that may sound, it never fails to raise the interest quotient of the curious observer by informing visitors about old and new styles of funeral processes, and also those available at Ohlsdorf cemetery. The museum has old maps and tools, as well as particularly nice tombstone sculptures, urns and some of the cemetery's oldest tombstones. You can even see where Hamburg's celebrities are buried and visit their graves to pay your respects.
