Südfriedhof (South Cemetery), a quiet place in Leipzig, Germany

Hello friends from all over the world

Have you ever added a tourist attraction to your list that you would like to visit, and that is a cemetery?

I know it may sound a bit strange but we are already on our fourth cemetery visit in Europe, the first one was in Zagreb, the second one was in Paris, the third one was in Maramures (Romania) and here we are visiting the fourth one with all of you in Leipzig (Germany).

By the way I still have on my list of sights about three cemeteries in Romania and Europe, I hope that in the future I can visit each one and show them to you.

A few posts ago I shared with you a wonderful place, namely the Monument of the Battle of the Nations in Leipzig, forget that this cemetery is located right next to this monument(if you want to take a look you can find it here).

But what makes it so attractive?

However, it is a graveyard.

As soon as we passed through the gate we were greeted by an image that at first glance did not appear to be a cemetery.

It was only after taking a few steps down the side alleys that I began to come across the funerary monuments, yes what monuments, very well done and it seems that some of them were of considerable age.

Let's take a tour of the cemetery.

The cemetery in my opinion is a sometimes mysterious place at least I am curious who is buried there, when I died and many other curiosities.

Also in this cemetery sleep their eternal sleep city personalities, writers, architects and many others, but unfortunately I can't show you all the funerary monuments, the cemetery has 82 hectares, for that I would need a few days, hehe.

Have you ever encountered deer in a cemetery?

If you look a little closer at the picture below you can see three free roaming deer in a natural environment.

After leaving the cemetery alleys in front of the chapel we found out that there is also a crematorium.

Thanks so much @livinguktaiwan , I really appreciate your support.

For me it were the cemeteries in Paris. We added them to our itinerary and it was a great experience. This one in Leipzig looks stunning too! It's actually a beautiful park with some graves in it 😊

Oh yes the ones in Paris are amazing,.
And yes I think the one in Leipzig is as you wrote a park full of graves😊
Have a wonderful weekend.

Oh wow you visited Germany, especially a place where I have not been. The pictures of the cemetery are really good, Leipzig is a really beautiful city!
Greetings:)

Yes I visited Germany twice this year, and had the chance to visit several amazing cities here including Leipzig.
I will upload a post with beautiful pictures taken in Leipzig, here I mean pictures of the center, pictures of the university there.
See you around.
