24. Jewish Cemetery

Further down the Fahrgasse, then left into Berliner Straße and a few more metres down into Battonnstraße: on the right we see a large closed cemetery wall. It surrounds the Jewish Cemetery (Jüdischer Friedhof) that was used from 1462 to 1828. It is unique in its kind in the world. A small iron gate permits a view through the cemetery wall.

We turn around towards Börneplatz. We walk back to the Cathedral via Berliner Straße and Braubachstraße. Our little ‘journey through time’ is finished. We have very easily passed through quite a few centuries. Would you have believed that history could be so entertaining?
