From 1788 to 1868 is was Munich's single collective burial ground - making it the last resting-place for many famous Munich residents of that time, like Josef von Fraunhofer, Friedrich von Gärtner, Leo von Klenze, Justus von Liebig, Georg Simon Ohm, Carl Spitzweg, and the 1100 victims of the massacre of Sendling's Night of Murder (''Sendlinger Mordweihnacht'') of 1705 with artistic gravestones and crypts. Today, the cemetery is a protected area and a local recreation area.
