Cemetery Feldli is quite big and beautiful. This is the kind of cemetery that you like to walk with wide paths and beautiful vegetation inviting to a relaxing walk and admire some stunning headstones. It is a very pleasant, tranquil and calming place. There aren’t any really famous graves like for example in Paris or London but that doesn’t make it any less interesting.
Like much of Swiss life, graveyards are strictly controlled and immaculately maintained. They certainly never have that centuries-of-moss look of English country churchyards or forest-of-graves appearance of city cemeteries in London or Paris. Instead, regimented rows have neatly planted flowers and clean headstones. All very Swiss. (You could read more about this here.)
Only very few graves are older than 25 years. Because after that, the graves are dug up and the site re-used. The traditional religions here are Catholicism and Protestantism but nowadays there are a few more.
