    It was not until 1911 that the cremation ceremony was officially allowed in Prussia - both the Catholic and the Protestant regional churches had long opposed it. The first crematorium in Berlin opened in Wedding, but it soon reached its limits. Due to the good experiences and the high demand one decided in Wilmersdorf to build their own crematorium, which should also correspond in design, the wealthy district. It was to be built on the edge of Wilmersdorf Cemetery - but ten years were to pass from planning in 1912 to its opening. Today the crematorium is no longer used, but you can still visit the Grade II listed building, the unique Columbaria and the venerable courtyard.Starting point of the tour is the S-Bahn station Heidelberger Platz, which you can reach with the S-Bahn lines S41, S42 and S46. First, it's a short walk along the road and then into the Volkspark Wilmersdorf. On a leisurely walk, you stroll around the Fennsee before finally entering the cemetery Wilmersdorf.As in many Berlin cemeteries from the 19th century, you can admire ancient burial places - and in some cases, the families have their wealth exposed quite openly. The crematorium awaits you in the northwestern corner. Sit down here on a bench and enjoy the special atmosphere. Then our route leads you back through the cemetery and along the Fennsee back to the S-Bahn station.
