Friedhof Nienstedten

The cemetery in the Nienstedten district, founded in 1814, is one of the oldest in Hamburg. It is still being used. In the 1970s, historic gravestones of abandoned graves were preserved and made part of a museum. Today, the cemetery has seven preserved areas with magnificent gravestones from the 19th and 20th century.
