We came across the cemetery by chance and decided to visit it. Worth it. The cemetery contains the tombs of 11,887 German soldiers (many of them unidentified). Walking through in silence is quite an experience.

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