St. John’s Cemetery and the Garden of the Hesperides - Churchyard and Garden Culture

Churchyard and Garden Culture

St. John’s Cemetery is considered one of the most famous burial grounds in Europe.

The tour of the graves of patricians, craftsmen, artists, politicians and scholars provides many a fascinating insight into Nuremberg’s city history.

This beautiful cemetery enchants visitors from far and wide, particularly, of course, when the roses are in bloom.

A side trip to the nearby Garden of the Hesperides, which served recreational purposes, but also the cultivation of Mediterranean fruits, rounds off the picture of the ”green city district  of Johannis”. 

 

Note:
The Garden of the Hesperides is only open from May to October!
