The garden cemetery in Hanover was set 1741 and lies on the 1749 built garden church. Cemetery and church were designated here after that resident garden municipality outside of the city wall ring before the Aegidientor. The cemetery, that this very day a multiplicity of klassizistischer grave monuments particularly from the 1. Half 19. Century accommodated, 1864 were closed with plant of the new city cemetery Engesohde. It is today in the middle a park convenient in the city center of Hanover. The graves of Charlotte Kestner, Urbild of Goethe "Lotte" from "value ago", the Astronomin Caroline Herschel and the painter the Johann Heinrich RAM mountain to be found in order to call only the three most important, are here. The garden cemetery lies to the Marienstrasse, between and Arnswaldtstrasse.
The names "garden cemetery" and "garden church" point 18 to the emergence of the municipality and its cemetery from the garden municipality. Century. The today's hannoversche quarter "southern part of the town" lay at that time before the Stadtmauer and before the Aegidientor and by the so-called "garden people" predominantly for field and vegetable growing one used. These vegetable farmers, because of its simple dwellings, the "Katen", also "Gartenkosacken" (Kosacken = Verballhornung of "Kothsassen") mentioned, supplied with its products the city Hanover. For this population of the garden suburb the city Hanover 1741 put on the "new Kirchhof before the Aegidientor". 1746-49 were built by Johann Paul Heumann also (later so mentioned) the garden church, a simple hall church with a ridge turret, which had to yield 1887-91 a new building of the architect Eberhard Hillebrand. At the beginning 19. Century the cemetery was used however not only by the garden people, but also by the civil population of the center 18. Century delighted, close convenient "Aegidien Neustadt", the families of the officials, military, Ministers, professors and yard advice, about which this very day the labels of the gravestones witness. These grave marks represent straight this civil layer of the "pretty families" at their artistic expenditure of klassizistischen style elements, as it meant on The grave symbols of this time such as urn, itself the queue (=Unendlichkeit), butterfly (=Metamorphose), biting into the tail, and extinct torch/flare are to be discovered in various variations on the garden cemetery. To say nothing of such marvelous "total grave works of art" like the gravestone with and Palmetten for Charlotte Kestner or the Steinsarkophag of the count von Kielmannsegge, carried sketched by George Ludwig Friedrich Laves, by four Sphingen.
For years the cemetery was exposed the 1950er to strong purge, above all which concerns the gravestones from sandstone and the iron enclosure lattices. Air pollution, in addition, Vandalismus and (to today continuous) the abuse of the cemetery as dog toilet contributed the their to it. Since the old cemetery fence had been melted during the Second World War, since 1984 the former lattice of the channel bridge was shifted in the hannoverschen quarter Vinnhorst here and installed as fence. Common efforts of different cultural associations led finally to the safety device and repreparation of the plant. Thus now also a bronze orientation board in the input area, in the middle of the 90's offers thank-worth-proves donated the most important grave monuments still received from the Rotary club Hanover line lock, the possibility of a Rundgangs over the cemetery along. The numbers on this board are identical to those in the Heftchen worth reading of the green area office (see below: Literature).
