German girl discovers grandfather's grave is being used as a horror house attraction

Her visit to the Geiselwind amusement park in Unterfranken delivered an unexpected surprise

A 13-year-old girl got a rather unexpected surprise when visiting a theme park's horror house attraction. 

The Geiselwind amusement park in Unterfranken offers an experience called 'Dr Lehmann's Horror-Hospital' - an attraction to scare customers with bloody corpses, skeletons and other haunted house attractions.

When the girl went through it, she probably didn't expect to see the gravestone of her long-dead grandfather there. 

Despite his passing over 20 years ago, she had tended the grave before and recognised it. 

It transpired that the man's widow had paid a stonemason to remove and properly dispose of the stone after the lease expired for the plot of land the grave is situated on.

It would appear, however, that the mason sold the gravestone on without first removing the letters on it. 

While the widow of the girl's grandfather was reimbursed by the stonemason after the story emerged, she said she felt outraged her husband's memory had been disrespected in this manner. Not surprising, really.
