During the national Weekend of the Cemetery – whose theme this year is ‘Cemeteries: full of love’ – Westerveld Cemetery & Crematorium (Driehuis) and Moscowa Cemetery & Crematorium (Arnhem), both in the Netherlands, are offering very special walks.

 Individual walks
“As group walks and activities are currently not allowed because of Covid-19 measures, we are pleased to welcome visitors in a different manner,” explains Carla Bosua, director of the two locations. “After all, our beautiful memorial parks are very suitable for a walk, either alone or in a small group. We provide a map and description so that everyone can discover for themselves that our cemeteries are also ‘full of love’.”

On 30 May, Westerveld is offering a very special countryside walk which takes in a number of monuments. A route description is available from Petit Café Westerveld, where staff will be pleased to welcome walkers to the café patio, where food and drinks are available.

A special route has been set out in Moscowa Memorial Park, to take in graves which are ‘full of love’ for a loved one, but also for a hobby, pet or profession, for example. The walk is extremely suitable for a solo trip or in a small group. A map is available from Moscowa tearoom, and clearly shows the route.
