Tombstone Tuesday - Meiringen, Switzerland


1905 - 1991

 Meiringen Cemetery 
Another cemetery from our August 2007 trip to Switzerland.

Quite possibly the most beautiful cemetery I have ever seen. 

I could (and should) have photographed each and every stone. 
Each was as unique as the individuals whose lives they represented. 
The graves are so carefully tended, with family replacing fresh flowers regularly. 

The stones are all different,
engraved with symbols that represent the person's occupation or hobby.


  1. Thankyou for this post. I have Swiss ancestors buried in this cemtery and it has been lovely to see it in your phtographs.

  2. Oh Sharn, I'm so glad to be able to bring them to you. I will be posting more in the next couple of Tombstone Tuesdays.

    It's a beautiful place, and you can really tell the families continue to take good care of their loved ones.

    Thank you for reading.
