Holy Virgin Cemetary

About

As early as 1775 the present cemetery was laid out outside the former city walls on Limpertsberg.

It contains the tombs of William Voigt, better known as Hauptmann (Captain) von Köpenick and of Jean-Antoine Zinnen, a Luxembourg composer who made the music to the national anthem “Ons Heemecht” (Our home country).

It also contains the so-called Hinzert Cross Monument, which carries the official title of “National monument of Resistance and Deportation”.
