I don't know if I ever mentioned this before, but I am actually quite fond of graveyards. I like walking around in the peace and quiet and look at all the different graves. :-)

So today I decided to visit our North Cemetery and in the end spent almost 2 hours there. *oops*
I hadn't been there before. According to the website, it was opened in 1878 and is the biggest cemetery in the city (about 16 ha). What also interested me most about it was the large number of soldier's graves, especially the ones of the British Commonwealth soldiers.

Kiel War Cemetery

A 1 hectare big area, designed by British architect Philip Hepworth and maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. I spent a good 30 minutes here alone.
