    Not many love walks through graveyards, and this sounds a bit gloomy. However, Alter Fridhof cemetery, located near the Centre of Bonn, is it almost an integral attraction and many tourists visit it with pleasure. Here found most comfort famous musicians, prominent German scientists and statesmen. Among them composer Robert Schumann and his wife Clara, composer Wilhelm Vestmajer, the teacher of Beethoven, Franz Anton Fig, a professor at the University of Bonn, among them Ernst Moritz Arndt and August Wilhelm Schlegel, as well as the wife of the poet Friedrich Schiller Charlotte von Schiller and their son Ernst von Schiller, writer and Muse of composer Richard Wagner Matilda Vezendonk mother of Ludwig van Beethoven-Beethoven, Maria Magdalena, gone out of life at the age of 41 years, when her son was just 17 years old. On her Tomb tombstone epitaph has been preserved by the composer-"she was my dear mother, my best friend." Memorials of the old cemetery created mainly talented sculptors and treat them can and should be no less careful than exhibits in the Museum, because each has its own peculiarity. One of the most famous buildings of the cemetery-Gothic Chapel of St. George (13rd century), migrated here in the 1846-1847 years from Ramersdorf around Bonn. Platanam, growing around the Chapel, more than 150 years. The cemetery is open to the public: in summer period from 07.00-20.00. During wintertime from 08.00-17.00.
