The Novalis grave - a bust reminds of one of the most famous sons of Weißenfels, Friedrich von Hardenberg (1772-1801), better known as Novalis, who found his last resting place in the former cemetery at the age of barely 30. Only a few meters separate the last resting place of the romantic Novalis from his former residence in Klosterstraße, the Novalishaus.
