We now go through the pedestrian subway into Stiftstraße and on into Stephanstraße. On the left-hand side, right at the edge of the street, there are gravestones. We have arrived at the St. Peter´s Cemetery (Peterskirchhof), a part of the municipal burial grounds used between 1503 and 1828. This is where a few well-known names can be found and next door in a schoolyard there is the grave of ‘Frau Aja’, Goethe’s mother.
