Tyne Cot Cemetery Zonnebeke
#4 of 313 Sights & Landmarks in West Flanders Province
This is the largest Commonwealth War Grave Commission (CWWG) cemetery in the world and is built on the site of the Battle of Passchendaele (3rd battle of Ypres 1917).
If visiting the salient Tyne Cot is surely a must being the largest cemetery, with a view back over the fields towards Ypres which the Commonwealth forces had to cross during Ypres 3 - Passchendaele.

... of the CWGC, Also next door to the cemetery is a very interesting and thought provoking museum displaying the history of the hospitals and casualty clearing stations that were located on this site during WW1.

Ramparts Cemetery Ieper (Ypres)
#9 of 313 Sights & Landmarks in West Flanders Province
Set on the walls with a view over the canal, the setting is very tranquil and well worth a visit, on a fine day the walk along the ramparts is very relaxing.
You will enjoy the peaceful area that offers views of the surrounding countryside from the ramparts of the city.

Unmissable Site in Ypres
Langemark Cemetery Langemark
#13 of 313 Sights & Landmarks in West Flanders Province
Unlike Commonwealth War Graves, German soldiers were mostly buried in mass graves, and the poignant new entrance tunnel to the site is meant to symbolise that.
Many German men interred here were university students, so it can be called the Students Cemetery, it is tree filled, so feels darker than some CWWG sites which tend to be more "garden" like.

Burg Square Bruges
#14 of 313 Sights & Landmarks in West Flanders Province
Fantastic place for a short city break, stayed in a lovely hotel a short distance from the magical sights of Brugge.
It is hard to compare landmarks in Brugge, as every place is unique, well preserved and beautiful, but I would say Burg is the nicest of them all.

Essex Farm Cemetery Ieper (Ypres)
#15 of 313 Sights & Landmarks in West Flanders Province
The site is walking distance along the canal in Ypres, while it is the area from which John McCrae wrote his poem the cemetery housed a fallen soldier who is 15 but also had the grave of one of the fallen soldiers...
Again, as with all Commonwealth War Graves Commission sites, it is very well kept.

St Bonifacius Bridge Bruges
#17 of 313 Sights & Landmarks in West Flanders Province
The view from it of the canal with the old homes on it and the Church across on one side was Beautiful!

Battle of Polygon Wood Zonnebeke
#18 of 313 Sights & Landmarks in West Flanders Province
Polygon Wood is the smaller of the two, an in-place burial ground that highlights how even the most disorganized, impromptu burial sites from mid-campaign can be transformed into something beautiful.
The Polygon Wood area is the site of a battle (now a wooded preserve with some walking paths), and two cemeteries.

Hooge Crater museum Ieper (Ypres)
#20 of 313 Sights & Landmarks in West Flanders Province
The displays of artifacts found around the crater and museum site were great to see & the life size displays of life on the Front around Ypres for all armies were very informative.

Beguinage (Begijnhof) Bruges
#24 of 313 Sights & Landmarks in West Flanders Province
Beautiful place to meander, take in the sights, enjoy nature, and escape the commercialism of the touristy part of Bruges.

This is a big site, with lots of information to read and a good walk way through the trees and over the hills.There is lots more to see if you wander off the path, but watch where you are walking.
