Photographer's Note

St. John's Cemetery This is one of the most notable burial grounds in Europe. Albrecht Drer and Veit Sto are buried here, for example. The cemetery was created as the result of a progressive decision by the Town Council in the early 16th century prohibiting any more burials within the town walls.
Hence, new cemeteries were set up for both town parishes just outside the town walls. On the St. Sebaldus side the grounds of the old leprosy infirmary were extended. From 1518 well into the mid-19th century all Nuremberg citizens were buried either here or in the St. Roch's Cemetery on the St. Lawrence side of the town.
