Founded in 1828, Hauptfriedhof is the final resting place of many famous people. Amongst those who lie in peace here are philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, poet and peace campaigner Ricarda Huch, sociologist and philosopher Theodor W. Adorno, and Heinrich Hoffmann, writer of the world famous children's book Struwwelpeter. You will also find the graves of those who lost their lives on the Hindenberg airship. Opposite the main entrance, there is a row of gravestones which bear the names of famous Frankfurt families like Brentano, Bethmann and Holzhausen.
