The Allerheiligenkirche was followed by the Magdalenkapelle as the second columbarium of the city of Erfurt. The first door is open to every visitor, the second opens only with the chip, which is only used by the relatives of the surviving relatives there. It is a gem - a place of silence and tranquility from the hustle and bustle of the city.
