The old cemetery (German: Alter Friedhof) in Neuburg, a district of Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, covers an area of 2.65 hectares. Situated on park-like grounds, the old cemetery is one of Germany’s oldest cemeteries that have been abandoned and preserved as a whole. Located close to the Ludwigskirche, it is often mistaken to be part of the neighboring district Herdern. Providing tombs to an estimate of 1200 people, half of them are worthy of preservation. The booster club takes care of maintenance. The old cemetery falls under preservation order of cultural and natural monument. Moreover, it can be seen as evidence for death cult, town history and stylistic area of the 17th and 18th century.

Serving not only as a place for individual and artistic tombstones of middle class people. Furthermore, the old cemetery grants an insight into the consciousness of faith during the baroque period until the time of neo-classicism.

  • We went for a walk and also walked over the Alter Friedhof. There are old graves and tall trees. A good place to stay for a while.  more »
  • Locals stroll in the cemetery with their children and the elderly stroll with their walkers. People really enjoy spending time here, and so did I. Very shady, peaceful, and beautiful.  more »
