  • The Campo Santo Teutonico is the "German cemetery" inside the Vatican. The cemetery is somewhat hidden. We look at the Saint Peter's square you have to go to the left Colonnade. After the security check, you will find two soldiers of guard. No matter how many people before a pending, you must ask the soldiers on German (!) after the German cemetery. You may then pass on the snake and find ca 150 metres to the entrance. One located inside an idyllic tranquil place, the exact opposite of the hustle and bustle on St. Peter's square, the Cathedral or the museums. I can only recommend the place. Also the way there with the code word for the Swiss Guard fits perfectly to the often somewhat mystical Vatican. You should note that there is a fixed opening hours (only between 7:30 and 12: 00).

  • So a wonderful cemetery, a place of peace and Idyll! Also, there is a small church. We were very surprised that it even in February if anything most bloom is so idyllic. The sacrifice from Anton Maria de Waal is also to think a... The Swiss Guard, the one passing must is super nice and speaks itself German.

  • An experience. A cemetery where only people with a German-Dutch or Belgian passport in May. Salute the Swiss Guard and show your Passport. The Campo Santo dei Teutonici Cardenas dei Fiamminghi, the Germans call the Campo Santo Teutonico, is a cemetery in Rome that belonged to the Holy Roman Empire. It is located south of St. Peter's Basilica, on the place where the Circus of Nero. There is also a Belgian tramp buried that very long stayed on the Vatican square. REALLY BOTHER!

  • Supposedly only persons descendant from the Teutonic people can be buried here (ie: Flemish, Dutch, German, etc). For ages it was a burial site for Princes, Aristocrats or Priests, until 2015 when Pope Francis allowed the burial of a beggar.
  • Very nice place
  • German cemetery here comes only with a German passport by the Swiss Guard are only German of a certain order very beautiful cemetery in the cemetery and buried pilgrims who die on the pilgrimage to Rome via ballot box

  • Input something hard to find and I was outside the security checkpoint, where I finally found the entrance. Zig Italian security guards looked at me in my backpack and could then happen to me. The Swiss Guard in German (important, denied access English-speaking) addressed and they told me the way then. The German cemetery is a place of silence and contemplation. The tour won't be long and the one or other beautiful tomb discovered.

  • A green oasis of peace next to the hectic crowds at St. Peter's square. Access via the gate guard to the audience Hall open until 12: 00 noon every day,. Only accessible for members of the German speaking area, police and Swiss guards on German address ;-)
