The city run, non-denominational cemetery was opened in 1982. It has an area of 240240 square meters, or 60 acres. It's situated on the South-Western corner of 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), known as the Repose Time. 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.
