Old Catholic Cemetery (Alter Katholischer Friedhof)

Friedrichstraße 54
Dresden, 01067
+49 351 496 3082
The quarter Friedrichstadt covers four cemeteries. The most important is undoubtedly the old Catholic graveyard, also called the Inner Catholic cemetery. Situated directly across from the Friedrichstadt hospital, the cemetery contains many monuments from the age of baroque, rococo and classicism. The mortal remains of Carl Maria von Weber, which were brought over from London, are buried here. Also, Giovanni Battista Casanova, the brother of the famous adventurer lies in this cemetery. Many Polish names on the gravestones remind of the age of the Polish-Saxon union; most Polish immigrants who were in the area at this time are buried here.
