Visit the Old Johannisfriedhof, a 750-year-old cemetery with a powerful story. In 1 hour and 15 minutes a gravedigger guide will lead you through a tour that both respects the site as a final resting place and reveals its darkest secrets.

Become immersed in a long-forgotten world and learn about the horrors of the past. Hear how one can make a pact with the devil before death, which famous personality drove his children to suicide and why some people believe that Johann Sebastian Bach may actually be buried in the Old Johannisfriedhof.
