Riensberg Cemetery, Bremen

The Riensberg Cemetery was not the sole purpose of our visit to Bremen. Mainly it was the Ludovico Einaudi concert. But since we were there we took the opportunity to visit this beautiful cemetery. It has quite a lot of marvellous monuments, but the landscape is even more stunning. This park-like cemetery has lots of old trees (which i love on cemeteries) and there's even a beautiful lake inside the cemetery. And since Bremen is near the North Sea it even has it's own flock of seagulls.

We once again were lucky regarding the weather so we had fantastic light at the hour before sunset.

What a stunning piece of art! Just look at the level of detail..

Crazy colours.
