The Friedhof St. Johannis is one of Europe’s most important cemeteries, as a number of famous personalities, such as Albrecht Dürer and Veith Stoss, are buried here. A very beautiful place, it is also known as the “Cemetery of Roses” as a result of the many roses that grow on the site. The cemetery was commissioned as a result of the advanced council order that no longer permitted burials to be performed within the city walls. A new cemetery therefore had to be built in the surrounding area for the northern part of the city. Why not visit the baroque Hesperidengärten afterwards?
