Hofstätten is a small village in the middle of the Pfälzer Wald National Park in the German state of Rheinland-Pfalz and which is today incorporated in the municipality of Wigartswiesen. Hofstätten lies northwest of the small town of Annweiler am Trifels. Hofstätten was established in the Middle Ages and up until 1970 had its own elementary school.

The eldest of the graves in Hofstätten's cemetery dates from 1909. The cemetery is well maintained and in excellent condition. Most gravestones were photographed by Andreas Drieß in 2004.

The re-use of grave plots in Germany is very common. You or your family rent the plot for a period of 20 to 25 years (the time period varies from state to state). When
this time period is up, church or civil authorities approach your family or next of kin concerning a rental renewal. If you have no next of kin, they can't be found or your relatives elect not to renew the rental, the plot is reallocated and re-used.
