Solitude

A glance outside the Alter Nordlicher Friedhof, or the Northern Cemetery. Nestled between Schwabing (known for its lively café atmosphere) and Maxvorstadt (known for its many museums), the cemetery was opened in 1868, and after 800 burials, it closed in 1939 as “the inn was full.” It was used by Catholics and Protestants alike – if you can believe that – and marks the resting place of many prominent 19th century Munich citizens. Today, it is a place to take a break from the busy city or find a path for walking or jogging through the neighborhood.

Your blog has been included in our guide.

Around The World with Daily Photoblogs Old and New is a brief history of the City Daily Photoblog movement and a guide to sites around the world.

Although originally arising from the CDPB lists this is an independent publication. The criterion for inclusion here is that photographs mainly from a specific geographical location have been posted at dated intervals, and have archives searchable by date.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.
