EL ALAMEIN WAR CEMETERY contains the graves of men who died at all stages of the Western Desert campaigns, brought in from a wide area, but especially those who died in the Battle of El Alamein at the end of October 1942 and in the period...more
Markaz Al Alamein | Matrouh, El Alamein 51718, Egypt
this is a wonderfully kept up cemetery, They are doing a wonderful job considering where it is at, so out of the way and all. Make sure and sign the little rememberance book so they know people are still coming and make sure and pair...More
I had been to the cemetery as a child many years ago with my family and aunt. The photos taken at the time were stunning. I was shocked to see how weathered the memorials and headstones were. My first visit was less than 20 years...More
Stark and somber place lying in the desert sun. Over 7300 graves, cremated remains of 600 more, and a memorial to the 8500 whose remains weren't recovered are located here. There are monuments to the men of various countries of the Commonwealth. The entire site...More
We travelled to alexandria & wanted something a little different to do....
Our guide took us to the war cemetary at El Alamein. So worth the visit.
The museum is beautifully laid out & honours all the soldiers who fought here regardless of who they...More
Not on the itinerary for most tourists to Egypt, but for military history buffs, this well-maintained cemetery (along with the other related sites) can be worth a trip from Alexandria. It is designed in a traditional, war cemetery style. The rows and rows of headstones...More
Just a short hop down the road from the Military Museum is a reminder of what waging war does to humans. Thousands of graves, carefully laid out in rows, interspersed with colourful desert plans. The entry-way and the huge cross of the memorial at the...More
As with all military cemeteries, this is a somber and reflective place. To those who lost family members here, it will certainly be an emotional visit. There was a terrific sandstorm the day we visited, which while it made viewing more difficult, gave at least...More
A place of reflection and to pay tribute to humanity in retrospect! So many young and innocent lifes lost in war for no grand cause. From the inside much grander and impressive than what meets the eye from outside. A must see by all means...More
To see row after row of headstones and name after name of the fallen is a sobering sight. I would like to send the current leaders of the world there and maybe the insanity of what is happening in the world now might cease. What...More
Although all around felt barren and dry and desolate, the cemetery felt loved and cared for.
It was a bit boring for small children who didn't understand why mummy kept crying over strangers in the ground. The vastness of the cemetery and the amounts of...More

I had no problems whatsoever about feeling secure. The cemetery was not crowded with tourists as it is a distance from Alexandria. I of course had a private driver and guide who spoke fluent English. There is military presence there but I never felt threatened or intimidated that the military was there. Definitely worth seeing the contrasts in the Allies and German cemeteries'. Do not pass up the opportunity to go. I hope this helps.
