Cemeteries offer an excellent opportunity to explore elements of the cultural background of a location. While some find it somewhat morbid, those individuals that enjoy wandering amongst gravestones can develop a feel for the people of old. The variety of names on their obituaries proves enlightening as do the dates of birth and departure from their life on earth. The ages of the deceased can often reveal details of local occurrences.
In several towns and cities, graveyards can reveal beautiful park-like flora and fauna; open spaces that are quiet and peaceful, normally welcoming and great places to get centred and reflect upon the mysteries of destiny, fate or chance. Whatever one’s belief. Naturally, many cemeteries exist across the enormous Ruhr Metropolis and are normally open to the public.
