The St Petri Cemetery belongs to the oldest still existing cemeteries of the city of Brunswick. It was laid out in 1757 in an area what was located outside of the city. The parish of St Petri sold that area in 1638. The cemetery was extended several times and got the plane tree way after 1856. The St Petri Cemetery was closed after the inauguration of the Central Cemetery in 1887.
The city of Brunswick rented the area of the cemetery in 1977. The in the meantime ran wild cemetery was redeveloped on base of its historical structure between 1998 and 2001.
