#1 of 10 Sights & Landmarks in Diksmuide

Dodengang (Trench of Death)
#3 of 10 Sights & Landmarks in Diksmuide
The Museum provides a fantastic overview of the site as well as interpreting the action there.
The top floor gives an excellent view of the surrounding area and then you are able to walk through the trench system itself which has been largely maintained as it was during the war.

Langemark Cemetery Langemark 8.2 mi away
#1 of 2 Sights & Landmarks in Langemark
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.

Essex Farm Cemetery Ieper (Ypres) 8.7 mi away
#8 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
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.
