There are some sights in Heidelberg visitors will never miss: The castle and the old bridge, the famous big cask in the Heidelberg castle. Maybe they'll walk the "Philosophenweg", a street opposite the castle with the best view at Heidelberg's picturesque downtown.There are several other interesting places at Heidelberg to visit if one has more than a day to spend there. I will present some of them in loose order in this blog.

One of my favourite places in Heidelberg is Bergfriedhof Heidelberg.

The cemetery was created by landscape gardener Johann Metzger in 1842. It is located at the foot of "Königsstuhl" mountain, where parts of Heidelberg Altstadt (Heidelberg downtown) are located. Metzger seamlessly fit the 18 ha cemetery in it's natural surrounding, so it is similar to a park and one part of "romantic Heidelberg" - accentuated by mature trees at the older part of the area. Since 1844, when the cemetery was officially opened, a lot of famous people have been buried there. Some of them: politician Friedrich Ebert, conductor and composer Wilhelm Furtwängler, chemist Robert Bunsen, politician and sociologist Max Weber or poet Hilde Domin. Part of Bergfriedhof is a jewish cemetery, which is still in use, just like the rest of the burial site.
