Old Catholic Cemetery (Alter Katholischer Friedhof)
+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.
