Bring Out Your Dead

The Alter Südfriedhof, also known as the Old South Cemetery, was founded by Duke Albrecht V as a plague cemetery in 1563. It is located about half a kilometer south of the Sendlinger Gate between Thalkirchner and Pestalozzistraße, zoned outside of the city walls to prevent the spread of the plague. The cemetery also also served as the burial ground from the Sendling Uprising of 1705, where over 1100 people died after surrendering to the troops of Joseph I, Holy Roman Emperor. From 1788 to 1867, it was the single collective burial ground for the dead of the city. Notable residents include artist and architect Franz Karl Leopold von Klenze and sculptor Ludwig Michael Schwanthaler.
