The big Melatenfriedhof in Cologne

Once across the district of Braunsfeld for the big Aachener Straße. This leads quasi in east / west direction across the city. If you follow the road, you will also come directly from the Müngersdorfer Stadion to the city center of Cologne. The Aachener Strasse was one of the major and important main connecting roads that the Romans built from Cologne via Jülich, Maastricht, Tongern to the coast to Boulogne-sur-Mer.

On the history of Braunsfeld

The Braunsfeld area was previously only ever used for agricultural purposes. There were large lands and fields. In the Middle Ages, however, the "Cologne execution site" stood on the area of the current Melatenfriedhof . Afterwards also a hospital for leprosy sufferers! After the Cologne merchant and haulier Ferdinand Braun acquired large areas in Braunsfeld and built a brick factory there, many workers settled there around the brick factory. Because they lived in settlement houses that were also in the fields and areas of Mr. Braun, they simply called the areas "Braunsfelder" or Braunsfeld. This is how the name of the district came about!
