:-( This massive WWI & WWII German cemetery is sobering, realizing how fortunate one is to live in the European freedom, especially understanding that all of these young people lost their lives to obtain the peace of today. In 2017, there is a small café...More

This cemetary stands out because of its size. With almost 40000 buried soldiers it is the largest German war cemetary in western Europe. Most are from WWII, but there are a few from WWI. From a raised platform at the entrance one gets a good...More

This place is a must-see when you are in the neighbourhood. All the graves look the same, one cross for 2 graves, one on each side, a lot for unknown soldiers. With this simplicity, the place looks very serene. It also makes it clear that...More

Very big cemetary. Humbling seeing it and you forget that the 'enemy' at the time lost just as many soldiers. Very well laid out and well kept. More signs and information about it and who was buried there would be good
