Stadtgottesacker (City Cemetery)

The Stadtgottesacker was built in the 16th century and modeled after Italian Camposanto cemeteries. Not only is it the only one of its kind in Germany, but it is also considered one of the finest Renaissance cemeteries north of the Alps. It was designed by Nickel Hoffmann. Several famous people, like August Hermann Francke, Christian Thomasius and Georg Friedrich Handel’s father are buried here.

It’s truly astounding that… still today, Martin Luther‘s death mask can be seen in the Market Church.
