Located on a small peninsula, in the middle of the River Spree in the heart of the city of Berlin, this cemetery dates back to the 15th century. It's now a community cemetery, run by the city of Berlin. The current chapel dates back to the year 1744, built on much older foundations. The cemetery covers an area of only about 3.6 acres.
Please note that the final resting places in Germany are not eternal, due to lack of space. This cemetery has a "period of repose" of 20 years. Once the time is up for a renewal of the "lease" the cemetery administration will place a small sticker on the gravestone to alert the family to contact the office of the cemetery. Unless the family of the deceased pays for another period of 20 years, or the grave is of historical importance (in that case the city of Berlin will carry the costs), it will be leveled and re-used. Leftover stones will be collected and eventually crushed and used as gravel in road construction.
