Wahrscheinlich der ruhigste Ort in ganz Rom: Der deutsche Friedhof.
Direkt neben dem Petersdom liegt diese kleine grüne Oase umgeben vom Vatikanstaat und der wuseligen Stadt.
Der Besucher muss sich bei den Schweizer Gardisten am Tor südlich des Petersdoms zwischen den Kolonnaden und dem Palazzo del Sant’Uffizio melden und in deutscher Sprache den Zugang zum Deutschen Friedhof oder Campo Santo Teutonico begehren. Leute aus anderen Nationen haben keinen Zutritt.
Probably the most quiet places in Rome: The German cemetery.
This small green oasis is located directly next to the St. Peter´s Basilica and surrounded by the Vatican State and the lively city.
The visitor has to come forward to the Swiss Guardsmen at the gate south of St. Peter´s Basilica between the colonnades and the Palazzo del Sant’Uffizio and request admission to the cemetery in German. People from other nations have no access.
The Teutonic Cemetery (Italian: Cimitero Teutonico) is a burial site adjacent to St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City.
Located where once stood the Circus of Nero, during the period of the Roman Empire, it was the site of the martyrdom of many of the early Christians of the city.
During the Middle Ages, a school was built at the site, supposedly by the Emperor Charlemagne. In the 15th century, it became dedicated to the German-speaking residents of the city. There are two institutes of study and two chapels attached to the cemetery, one being the burial place of the Swiss Guards who fell in defense of the city against the forces of the new Kingdom of Italy in 1870.
In recent times, the cemetery was reserved for the burial of German-speaking members of the various religious institutions in Rome. In February 2015, Willy, a homeless Belgian man was buried in the cemetery, with the financial assistance of a German family, after approval by Pope Francis and reflecting his maxim that he wants "a poor church, for the poor".
