Last Entrance

Das ist der Eingang zum Bergfriedhof in Stuttgart-Ost vom Parkplatz aus gesehen. Ich gehe gerade im Herbst gerne über Friedhöfe, wenn die Grabstätten mit Herbstpflanzen ausgestattet und winterfest gemacht werden.
This is the entrance to the cemetery named Bergfriedhof in the East of Stuttgart seen from the parking. I like to walk through graveyards in autumn. The people plant the graves with autumn plants and winterize them.
Und so sieht es vom Friedhof aus.
This is the view from the cemetery.

Wow, beautiful gates. I assume they close the gates at night so the living can't go in and the departed out.

nice entrance - cemeteries can be nice places to walk through during the day.

This is a very elegant and fancy cemetery. I enjoy walking through cemeteries at any time and reading the various inscriptions.

Nice photos, Steffen.

Do you know why they put fences around cemeteries?

'Cause people are just dying to get in!

Sorry, that's very lame! But I couldn't resist.

Have a great weekend.

The entrance makes it appear as though this is an estate! Yes, cemeteries are interesting places with a calm and quiet atmosphere that promotes reflection.

I guess those who enter here usually do not exit. Very nice shots.

A cemetery is a nice place for walking around and thinking about life.

What a beautiful resting place! Yes, I agree, cemeteries are about the only place to get peace and quiet, and time to think full, uninterrupted thoughts.
