    In Berlin, there are not only Christian cemeteries - an exception is, for example, the Turkish cemetery on the edge of Tempelhofer Feld. The cemetery is already surprisingly old - it was opened in 1866. Prussia and the Ottoman Empire maintained a close friendship at that time, and the Prussian King Wilhelm I donated part of his garrison cemetery to the Ottoman Embassy. Until 1989, people were buried here, since then, nothing has changed - according to Muslim belief graves may not be reused. Also worth seeing is the small mosque with its two minarets. In addition to the Turkish cemetery, we also take you on this tour to four other historic cemeteries in Neukölln.Starting point is the S-Bahn station Hermannstraße, which you can reach with the lines S41, S42, S45, S46 and S47. From here, it's a bit along the bustling Hermannstraße and then on the "Three Cemeteries". The Old St. Michael Cemetery, the New Luisenstadt Cemetery and the St. Thomas Cemetery have merged into a large common cemetery - but officially they still belong to three different communities, although there is even only one entrance. Especially beautiful are the old avenues, the statues along the paths and tombs, and the old burial grounds on the cemetery walls.From here you stroll through the Anita Berber Park and then a piece over the wide Tempelhofer field. Shortly after you reach the Columbiadamm and thus also the cemetery on Columbiadamm. It was once called the garrison cemetery - at that time the Tempelhof field was still the parade ground of the Berlin garrison - and therefore you can inspect several regimental and officer graves from Prussian times. A small part of the cemetery is separated: the Turkish cemetery. In direct comparison with the other cemeteries, you will notice quite a few differences in the design of the graveyard and graves.Afterwards you will walk over the Columbiadamm and the Tempelhofer Feld back to the S-Bahn station Hermannstraße.
