The entire cemetery is surrounded by trees, which limit the cemetery as a resting park and dam up any disturbing environmental noise. The park invites to pause, reflect and meditate.
In the last third, at the end of the main path, there is a monument to the Russian soldiers buried here, most of whom died in camp STALAG XII during the Second World War. This camp was located in Freiendiez. The dead soldiers were mainly prisoners of war, who died in the camp. Some Russian soldiers died in a bomb attack on the camp on 23 December 1944. The camp was erroneously attacked by American bomber units, because the set markers, the so-called Christmas trees, had been driven away by a strong east wind in the direction of Diez, thus setting a false marker. The original target had probably been the railway station in Limburg, which was spared on this day.
