Building of the Week - Hamburg

Who knew crematoriums can be this magnificent.

Well this one most certainly is. It was built between 1930 and 1932 by architect Fritz Schumacher in the Backsteinexpressionismus (Brick Expressionism) style and is located in the world’s largest park cemetery (389 hectares) in Hamburg Ohlsdorf. It‘s even got a nice place for Kaffee und Kuchen attached to it.

Pictures were taken in November 2019.
