A really fascinating hidden away point of interest. Amazing views from the top too but it's all about the 12,000 German soldiers interned here. Each one has a plaque, if you were looking for someone in particular to pay your respects this can be done...More

A few museums done, a couple of beaches and cemetery visits and yet this place really brought home the reality of the situation. Men and boys defending another country on behalf of something that must have seemed a million miles away. By the time we...More

France's care of the German war dead is impressive. It is located in a very respectful and somber location.

I had already visited this cemetery several times over the years. Last June I made a quick stop after my wife and I had spent the afternoon at Mont St-Michel and were driving back to our hotel in Pontorson. I wanted to visit the grave...More
