Munich's old graveyard, in the center of town. It got heavily damaged in WW2, and was never fully restored. Many graves are overgrown by trees and plant, adding to the atmosphere. It doesn't have the allure of e.g. the Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, but it is still a great place. This also means it isn't usually swarmed with groups of people.

Note: on this cemetery (at least until 2017) you might spot a red squirrel; they are almost completely out-competed by their invasive cousin, the grey squirrel, in the rest of town. Eventually, they will lose the battle here too.

Arguably the most famous person buried here is Georg Ohm (former leader of the German resistance ;) ), but his grave is slightly underwhelming.
