This Forest Cemetery is a family grave site where a famous German artist, Wenzel Hablik, and his relatives are buried.

This place is quite hidden and keeps the Lindemann family. The forest gives a very special note to a place like this. Trees and stones let you feel a kind of immortality and reincarnation.

Spring is a very spiritual time—you see the new leaves sprout and the old putrefied on the ground. There is a little creek aside this place with a bench to rest. Although it´s a "private" place, strollers can enter freely and rest.

It gets more and more popular here to be buried in a forest—as an anonymous urn under a tree though.

The location is set false to keep this place hidden and in peace.
