It is the "Stadtfriedhof Ricklingen" (City Cemetery Ricklingen). Founded 1908 and containing about 30.000 (dead) people.
It does not contain very much monuments, statues or graves that meet my taste, but there are some gems nonetheless:
|Detail of a beautiful angel|
|The same. This time more of a wideshot...|
|Tomb of the Mittenzwei Family: According to the booklet this is one of the very early statues of the Cemetery and it is a brilliant piece of art.|
|Tomb of the Mittenzwei Family|
|Very moving inscription. Here's a rough translation for all you non-german speaking folks: |
"You Dead You Dead
What shall we do
Our life's golden path ended
in dread and night
Because man did too much
Because man thought too little"
|Very funny inscription: "Life's not a Gala-Dinner!"|
My excuse: It was very dreadful weather at that time: Quite a biblical downpour with thunder and lightning and all. So it was too dark, too wet and i'm not really fit for treats like this....
