Since it was first occupied in 1827, the Gute Ort on Schönhauser Allee has been a gem in its ensemble of buildings, corridors and streets steeped in history. The list of famous Berliners who have found their last resting place in the cemetery is an excerpt of the "Who's Who" of the 19th century.

During World War II there was much destruction and many, too many disturbing stories to be told. In 2005 a unique lapidarium was inaugurated. 60 tombstones were restored for this. A very good exhibition on Jewish cemetery and mourning culture can be seen there.

Optionally, the tour then goes past the Jewish corridor to the synagogue on Rykestrasse.

This tour focuses on women who have achieved great things themselves, but who have also been almost forgotten alongside well-known men.
