    On this tour on the edge of the historic center of Berlin you visit some of the oldest cemeteries in Berlin. The Dorotheenstädtische cemetery, the St. Elisabeth cemetery and the cemetery Sophien II emerged in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Like other cemeteries, they were created according to the "Prussian General Land Law" outside the city walls. The rapid growth of Berlin from the middle of the 19th century on the other hand caused the demolition of the city wall and the city simply grew around the cemeteries. Today you can stroll along venerable Prussian tombs and enjoy the tranquility in the middle of the hectic city.Let's go to the Nordbahnhof, which you can easily reach with the S-Bahn lines S1, S2, S25 and S26. From here you first walk through the small park to the first cemetery, the Dorotheenstädtisch-Friedrichswerder Cemetery. Here, the parishioners from the two historic districts Dorotheenstadt and Friedrichswerder were buried. A special feature: the many cast iron crosses from the early 19th century - iron was then in Prussia a sought after material for artwork and tomb design.Then it goes on quiet roads back to Invalidenstraße. Here you will find two venerable cemeteries right next to the Pappelplatz: the cemetery Sophien II and the St. Elisabeth Cemetery. Just as on the Dorotheenstädtischen you can here artful grave design from the 19th century and also discover the last resting place of some famous Berliners and Prussians. After your cemetery round it is only a few steps back to the North Station.
