As early as 1775 the present cemetery was laid out outside the former city walls on Limpertsberg.
It contains the so-called Hinzert Cross Monument, which carries the official title of “National monument of Resistance and Deportation”.
Numerous famous personalities have been buried at the Notre-Dame cemetery for example: William Voigt, better known as Hauptmann (Captain) von Köpenick or Jean-Antoine Zinnen, a Luxembourg composer who made the music to the national anthem “Ons Heemecht” (Our home country).
