There aren't just "old" guests, the cemetery seems to be still in use. It is a quiet oasis close to the city centre, where Robert Schumann and Clara Wieck rest in peace, together with many famous and less famous people.

The Old cemetery of Bonn is near the city hall and is open everyday. It is interesting to visit as there are old graves and structures there. Some known Bonners are also laid to rest in the cemetery. It looks nice in autumn with the...More
