This memorial/cemetery for German soldiers who died in the Great War is a very unique perspective on the area and the war. It shifts your focus to thinking about the German soldiers who died during the war. Not all of them were prepared for this...More

Langemark Cemetery is a German cemetery honoring the German war dead from around Ypres. Because so many of those buried here were young and inexperienced in battle, it became known as the "student cemetery". It gives you perspective after seeing the cemeteries of the French...More

It's worth the time to see this place. A common grave contains the remains of some 40,000 German soldiers, and 2 British soldiers. It is a stark reminder that there were two sides to this war - two sets of brave young men full of...More

This is a grave site with over 24,000 Germans buried and where the Allied dead from WWI are greatly emphasized, this is a stark reminder of those who sacrificed from "the other side". I do not take sides in this only point out that both...More

A fascinating contrast to the war memorials of the allies and just as worthy of our respect as we mark the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1

This has to be one of the most remarkable commemorative Cemeteries in the area and is the final resting place for around 44000 German Soldiers.

Large German cemetery and whilst the Commonwealth headstones are white the German markers are set into the ground and are black and almost all of the graves have multiple occupancy. There are the remains of 3 German Pillboxes on site. It was sad to hear...More

This cemetery feels cold and forgotten,,,,even though enemies have also lost their lives and real people have lost their loved ones, it just doesn't feel like a place for remembrance. Cold dark and foreboding, the Black Stones hold multiple names and all lie flat to...More
