    The historic cemetery is located directly at the visitor car park. However, this was locked - you could see a few historical gravestones over the wall.

    There are ways to get to the very old cemetery and you can see the possibility from the gate. Creepy in the fog or at a late hour, the cemetery is really very old.

    The cemetery is likely to have been laid out towards the end of the 16th century. It was the cemetery of the fortress, and in later times landlords and fortress overseers and their family members also found their final resting place there.

    Old cemetery that could have come from a horror movie at dusk.

    "Most of the surviving tombstones date from the 19th and 20th centuries. Even after the Hohentwiel Fortress was destroyed in 1801, the domain continued to exist as a small Württemberg community, which until 1968 belonged to the city of Tuttlingen.
    In the first half of the 20th century there was an experimental estate on the domain. The tenants of the domain and their families were buried here until the 1960s.
    The only gem of baroque stone carving is the weathered tomb for Captain Andreas Geisel to the right of the entrance on the cemetery wall. "
    Despite the very beautiful autumn weather, there was an unusually gloomy atmosphere in the cemetery. Maybe that's because of the shady location? Who knows! 🎃🎃

    The cemetery has not been accessible for a long time, which is a shame.
