Königsberg / Kaliningrad, Russland


Aus dem Zentrum Königsbergs/Kaliningrads (Nähe Bernsteinmuseum) nimmt man die Straße Richtung Zelenogradsk / Cranz (Alexander-Newski-Straße, ehem. Cranzer Allee). Die Kriegsgräberstätte liegt stadtauswärts auf der rechten Straßenseite hinter einer großen Flügelmauer mit Toreinfahrt.

Bereits 1995 wurde mit Zustimmung der Stadtverwaltung von Kaliningrad begonnen, eine Kriegsgräberstätte auf dem ehemaligen Zivilfriedhof "Cranzer Allee" zu planen. Nach Erhalt der Baugenehmigung konnte mit dem Umbau im Jahre 2001 begonnen werden. Hier ruhen etwa 4 000 bis 5 000 Bombenopfer und eine unbekannte Anzahl von ausländischen Kriegsgefangenen, wie Belgier, Franzosen und Polen.
Bis Ende 2012 wurden 11 700 Tote aus dem Stadtgebiet und der weiteren Umgebung zugebettet. Weitere Einbettungen werden folgen. Auf 14 Granitstelen sind 6 389 Tote namentlich genannt. Der Friedhof wurde am 23. August 2003 eingeweiht.

Notes for visitors to the cemetery

At some war grave sites which the War Grave Commission established in Eastern Europe, the graves in part have not yet been marked with names! Therefore we urgently request that relatives get in touch with us by email at or by telephone on +49 (0) 561-7009-0 before a planned visit. This way we can ensure that the respective war grave site is open at the time the visit has been planned.
