  • Here, Munich and Munich visitors can draw strength for the day. For BB´s here are nature, quiet, stimulants for reflection and humility, historical to the personal and cult of professional old Munich citizen and business families, especially the Brewers dynasties - as it should be in this city. Because the City Council can be not sufficient guidance, joy of discovery and excitement in finding certain tombs is guaranteed. Nevertheless, and therefore highly rewarding!

  • Wandered here randomly. Looked at the map, they decided that this park, decided to take a stroll. Very old and cozy cemetery. Pretty much well preserved monuments, but there is almost destroyed. The place is very atmospheric and peaceful. Strongly recommended for leisurely walking
