  • German cemetery, sober but beautifully maintained. The images of Kate Kolwitz, with the grave of her son, makes you quiet. Beautiful that also "the enemy".

  • The visit to this war cemetery, and certainly the image of Kate Kolwitz, you will still be remembered. Again the madness of war clearly highlighted. The text on the Yser Tower "never again war", is more important than ever.

  • This cemetery is such a contrast to others in the region and well worth a visit for a more balanced view of the conflicts. It isn't far from the nearest town and is a very peaceful resting place.  more »

  • I was in Ypres to visit the Menin Gate and nearby in Armentieres to visit the Bonjean Cemetary where my partner's great uncle who was in the Liverpool Regiment was buried on the 100th anniversary of his death. I found out a few days later that my German great uncle was buried in Langemark 3 years earlier in 1914 - one of the young innocents. All so sad. I'll certainly visit next time I'm in the area.
  • I am so glad I visited here with my son. It is a sobering reminder of the innocent who fell on both sides. I will remember this place forever and glad we now call them friends.
  • We visited several cemeteries when visiting Ypres and I hold this one as the most beautiful one. It's really simple with nothing to steal the attention of your eyes from the countless names upon the tombstones.
  • Impressive, renovations seem to have been completed. When you are here do not forget to visit Vladslo (with the famous and beautiful statue of K├Ąthe Kollwitz) and the German cemetary in Menen, both just as impressive.
  • Very sombre place. Makes you think about both sides of this terrible war.
