Funeral Forest Osterfeld | Allendorf

Planning Phase

The district of Osterfeld is located about 2 km north of the municipality of Allendorf (Eder). On the north-western edge of the settlement there is a south-facing, steeply ascending forest area with a valuable grove of mainly beech trees. Here, a burial forest with urn graves is being created on a partial area of approx. 2.2 ha. The design provides for paved and less paved, informal paths to gently open up the area and the graves. Part of the mourning and commemoration is also a memorial place covered with a weather roof, which will be set up at the entrance to the burial forest. Sectional view: © GTL
