Ehrenfriedhof

The German WWI and WWII Cemetery, Ehrenfriedhof, is a place that my husband and I passed by once before and have been meaning to go back to.  It is one of those places that is so close by and easy to get to, that you keep putting it off and seem to never get back to visit.  However, the nice weather and sunshine we had this weekend gave us the motivation to get out and explore a bit.  We decided to head down the road to Heidelberg and visit a couple of historical sites in the area.  We visited Thingstatte, a Nazi amphi-theatre, and finally made it back to Ehrenfriedhof to take some photos of this beautiful site.

This is a beautiful site. We should always remember our war dead, as well as our veterans.
