    Schöneberg was still an independent city until 1920 - accordingly, Schöneberg also had its own cemeteries, far away from downtown Berlin. The two old cemeteries, to which we guide you on this tour, are located on the "Red Island". The name "Red Island" was given to the old building district, which is encompassed by train tracks in all directions, at the beginning of the 20th century. At that time mainly leftist workers and small people lived here. Especially exciting: The tenements on the Red Island do not even match the magnificent graves of the wealthy Schönebergers, which you can look at in the cemeteries.Your round starts at the S-Bahn station Yorckstraße, which you can reach with the S-Bahn lines S2, S25 and S26. First, it goes parallel to the S-Bahn tracks through the pretty Flaschenhalspark, a part of the park at the Gleisdreieck. On the monument bridge - from which you have a good view of the Berlin skyline - you cross the railway tracks and follow them on the other side further south.Soon you will reach a narrow strip of greenery, the Hertha Block Promenade, which leads you from the tracks between old industrial buildings and tenements to the Old Twelve Apostles Cemetery. Wealthy Schoenebergers have done here in the cemetery, which was inaugurated in 1864, magnificent tombs with beautiful statues and tombstones.After a short walk in the cemetery, you follow our route through the Gründerzeit streets to the Old St. Matthew's Cemetery. Here you walk under old trees, along old graves and to the magnificent cemetery chapel. There is also a small café right at the exit, where you can take a break with home-baked cake. From there it is only a few minutes back to the S-Bahn station Yorckstraße.

    Access to the Twelve Apostles Cemetery on Naumannstraße and the Old St. Matthew on Monumentenstraße are mostly completed.
    That makes the beautiful tour, as described here, unfortunately a bit difficult.

    Unfortunately I only read uakari's comment after the tour.
    Unfortunately he is right. The door on Naumannstrasse. is always closed.
    You need a key, it can also be bought. On the way back from this tour I met 2 women at the entrance to Naumannstrasse. You just came from the cemetery, knew that and locked the gate behind you again.Unfortunately, the whole tour is no longer right. I should keep repenting and / or going back. Very annoying.
    But it was the first time that a tour description was so wrong and inadequate.
    It is also a racetrack for, unfortunately, mostly inconsiderate cyclists.
    Unfortunately not recommended
