  • S-Bahn Berlin

    It is hard to believe: in Berlin, for example, in the control center of what was then Nazi Germany, Europe's largest Jewish cemetery was able to outlast the Nazi regime and the war. The huge cemetery with an area of more than 40 hectares was created in 1880 in Weißensee. The buildings in the cemetery, such as the funeral hall, are characterized by a special aesthetic - Jewish style mixed with typical Prussian brick walls. The cemetery fell into oblivion after the war and during the German division and became increasingly neglected until the 1980s with renovation and refurbishment work began. Today many areas are still characterized by a romantic decay, while other parts have been carefully repaired.From the S-Bahn station Landsberger Allee, which is served by the S-Bahn lines S8 and S85 as well as by the Ringbahn lines S41 and S42, you first walk through the quiet Volkspark Prenzlauer Berg. From Volkspark it is only a few minutes to the venerable entrance to the cemetery. Take a little time to admire the many differently designed burial places and the park-like facility of the cemetery.From the cemetery, our route will take you to the S-Bahn station Greifswalder Straße. From here you can take the lines S41, S42, S8 and S85 back home.
