Dorotheenstädtischer Friedhof, Berlin, Germany

Graves of playwright and poet Bertold Brecht (1898-1956) and his second wife, the actress Helene Weigel-Brecht (1900-1971).

Grave of the philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831).

Grave of Johannes Rau (1931-2006), Prime Minister of Nordrhein-Westfalen (North Rhein-Westphalia) 1978-1998 and President of Germany 1999-2004.

Dorotheenstädtischer Friedhof (in full Der Friedhof der Dorotheenstädtischen und Friedrichswerderschen Gemeinden) is situated in Chausseestraße 126 in Mitte, Berlin. The closest subway station is either Zinnowitzerstraße or Oranienburger Tor. The cemetery was established in 1763. I visited the Friedhof in February 2008.
