    On this tour you walk along the course of the old Berlin excise wall, which existed until 1869. Today, there are no traces of it left - but you can still guess the course of the Wall based on the position of the old cemeteries, which had to be built in front of the city gates. In addition to the Georgen-Parochial Cemetery and the St. Georgen Cemetery you also visit the Volkspark Friedrichshain - all in all you can look forward to a long walk in the green in the middle of the city.The tour starts at Berliner Ostbahnhof, which is served by the S-Bahn lines S3, S5, S7, S75 and S9. From here, follow Koppenstraße north, cross the impressive Karl-Marx-Allee and finally reach the Friedenstraße. Once here, enter the Georgen Parochial Cemetery. With almost 180,000 square meters, it is the largest of the cemeteries, which were inaugurated in 1800 at the Berlin city wall. With its age-old trees and forest-like areas, the cemetery is more reminiscent of a park - and you can admire half-ruined burial grounds and cast-iron-tombed tombs from the imperial era.From the exit on Lansberger Allee you leave the cemetery and walk across to the Volkspark Friedrichshain - which was also located outside the city wall at its opening in 1846. Our tour will take you here on the Kleinen and the large pond over to the Café Schönbrunn and of course to the fairy tale fountain. From the fountain with its stone fairy-tale characters, it goes over the Greifswalder Straße and the St. Georgen cemetery. A short round takes you along impressive tombs and under tall trees. From here it is worthwhile to make a detour to the Leisepark: Until 2007, it was still part of the cemetery and was then transformed into a quiet and peaceful park with a new concept while preserving the old plants and trees as well as individual graves from the imperial era.From the Leisepark you finally stroll down the Prenzlauer Allee to the S-Bahn station Alexanderplatz.
