The Invalids’ Cemetery (German: Invalidenfriedhof) is one of the oldest cemeteries in Berlin. It was the traditional resting place of the Prussian Army, and is regarded as particularly important as a memorial to the German Wars of Liberation of 1813-15.
Between Kieler Eck and the nearby Invalidenstrasse checkpoint lies the Invalidenfriedhof, which was largely destroyed by the expansion of the border fortifications. The cemetery wall that bordered on the Spandauer Schifffahrtskanal served as an outer wall.
