The Ohlsdorf cemetery is one of the most beautiful and interesting places in Hamburg. A cemetery? It is the largest park cemetery in the world!

With its garden art and its wealth of funerary sculpture, it was one of the globally recognized total works of art in the world as early as 1900. So impressive that he was awarded a Grand Prix at the Paris World's Fair.

Under old trees we can enjoy the green wealth of our city. An oasis of calm! A dream! Because romantic paths with a forest-like ambience alternate here with beautiful watercourses. Works of art of incredible diversity can be found in the smallest of spaces. And at the same time, this cemetery is a real treasure chest of Hamburg history.

During our tour we roam the old historical part with its numerous angel figures and magnificent sculptures. We see angels with and without a beard. Lovely characters and almost threatening. Then we join resistance fighters from Hamburg, who defended human rights during the Nazi era. The Althamburg Memorial Cemetery and the poet's corner follow. We see the graves of Wolfgang Borchert, Henry Vahl, Ida Ehre, Hans Albers and many other prominent Hamburgers.

A bit further we come across the former mayor Johann Georg Mönckeberg. Also known as Mayor Pfennigfuchser, he was very popular with ordinary people. We come across the King of Albania, we see the Blood Beech District and a Columbarium. The graves of the publisher Julius Campe…

Magnificent mausoleums, tree tombs and butterfly gardens. Created in 1877 under the sign of secularization as the first cemetery that was open to all religions and denominations, the diversity of artistic design in the cemetery is enormous. But with all this diversity, we also get to know typical funeral symbols. You see the phoenix from the ashes, huge urns and also the Ouroboros. Why roses, anemones and poppies are particularly important here is also on our program ...
