It is well-known for the many famous personalities who found their last resting place here. Theodor Fontane wrote about the Bornstedt cemetery, coining the famous words: “What dies in Sanssouci will be buried in Bornstedt”.

Under shady trees and surrounded by ivy, the Bornstedt cemetery is a place of peace and quiet where you can take a stroll about the history of Potsdam and of course Prussia itself. Many gravestones bear the names of deceased dignitaries, court officials and royal court gardeners, such as the Sello family. The graves of the famous landscape gardener Peter Joseph Lenné as well as architects Friedrich Ludwig Persius and Reinhold Persius and Ferdinand von Arnim are also to be found here.

The best way to get to Bornstedt cemetery is via Ribbeckstrasse. The Orangery Palace is only a few hundred metres away. The cemetery is easy to find due to the prominent church tower, which is visible from a long distance.

Every first Saturday of the month from April to October guided tours of the cemetery are offered by the Verein Freunde des Bornstedter Friedhofs e. V.
