There are a lot of historic tombs in the, including the one from Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau who directed the movie Nosferatu. But we went there to see the cemetery chapel!
The cemetery chapel from Südwestkirchhof Stahnsdorf was built between 1908 and 1911, and it follows the plans from Gustav Werner. The church has an interesting Norwegian style, and it’s all made of wood. Inside, the wooden decoration is presented together with Art Nouveau glass windows and an organ by Wilhelm Sauer that is all original. Too bad the church was locked when we tried to get it.
The Südwestkirchhof Stahnsdorf is a little bit tricky to arrive since it’s located between Berlin and Brandenburg, in an area that is not that populated. If you want to visit the place, get a train to Teltow and cycle to the church. Or you can try to follow our trail of Dark locations and take a train to Wannsee and walk through the forest. And, since you are already in Stahnsdorf, you should explore the abandoned sanatorium there!

Besides that, we also wrote about a few of the other principal locations in Dark here, like the Winden Cave, the Waldhotel Winden, the school and the bridge in Dark.
