Let's do a guided tour over Cologne's main cemetery, Melaten. Melaten Cemetery, which is over two centuries old, is an oasis of peace and quiet in the midst of this vibrant metropolis. It’s a real jewel among the city’s cemeteries — and because of its parklike design, it’s not merely a burial place and a site of mourning but a very popular place for people who like to stroll.

Melaten Cemetery has about 55,000 graves, including those of prominent Cologne citizens such as members of the Millowitsch theatre dynasty, Willi Ostermann, Dirk Bach and the Farina family (the creators of Eau de Cologne). Here you can also find numerous impressive monuments and objects of traditional and contemporary art.

The tour will be 2 hours long and will be in German. You can book tickets on the website of "Stadtgeflüster" (see link above). At the moment Groupon has an offer for this tour for 8,40 Euros instead of 12,- Euros (Protected content ).

I'm looking forward to seeing you for this interesting tour.

See you,
