Karlsruhe's main cemetery is huge and shows beautiful trees and quite a number of remarkable gravesites - some really artistic, others just plain tasteless. I like walking there in autumn, that's the season to be close to the dead to me.

The chapel and courtyard in the style of an Italian camposanto were built by the architect Joseph Durm in 1874-76.

Where? Haid-und Neu-Straße (near Hoepfner Brewery)
