The cemetery behind Trinity Church is unique within Europe. It is the burial place of Protestant ambassadors who attended the Perpetual Imperial Diet (1663 – 1806) in Regensburg. The tombstones give evidence of these people’s fate, of the political life in those days, of love, happiness and grief.
Of special interest is the fact that the fate of individual persons can be reconstructed from the inscriptions on the tombstones.
One example is that of Ernst Eberhard – the Imperial Count of Metternich.
