Cologne - Südfriedhof 

Cologne is the fourth-largest city in Germany - and one of the oldest. A Germanic tribe, the Ubii, had a settlement here, this was named by the Romans "Oppidum Ubiorum". In 50 AD, the Romans founded "Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium", the city then became the provincial capital of "Germania Inferior".

The "Southern Cemetery" is the largest cemetery in Cologne. The cemetery, laid out as a parkland, was opened in 1901. About 40.000 civilian victims of the WWII bombings of Cologne are buried here. The quiet area includes an Italian and a British war cemetery.

Located near the main entrance is this octagonal, neo-Romanesque chapel.
