|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This part of the cemetery can be accessed from either Haselnussweg (parking about 100 yards away from the main gate) or through the main part of the Parkfriedhof at one of these gates (quite some walking distance):
Buckower Damm 148
Leonberger Ring 54
The Parkfriedhof Neukölln is a vast inner-city, non-denominational cemetery, located in the southern part of Berlin. The main cemetery usually sees coffin burials, the Parkfriedhof Neukölln (Urnenhain) is reserved for urne burials only. Both are run by the city of Berlin.
Unlike American cemeteries, due to lack of space, the "final" resting places in Germany are not eternal. The plots are usually leased (subscribed to) for a certain period of time (15-25 years). After that it depends on the descendants (or the community if it's a famous person) to finance another period of 15-25 years.
If no family is left, and the grave is old, the plot is cleaned and will be used for another burial.
