  • Waldmann stone slabs of more than 12,000 many died prematurely young men for senseless massacre. More than 8000 are unknown. Well maintained cemetery for all those young victims of the great war 14-18. A place that one must visit as tribute for those victims.

  • A haunting yet beautiful place. Emotional.
  • It was beautiful, such peace for great people.
  • Remember the fallen. Some of the exhibits show these were people with real live cut short very sad.
  • Largest war cemetery in western Europe. Definitely worth seeing and remembering.
  • Beautifully maintained and extremely moving. I don't think words can describe much more of what it feels like it to stand and witness the silent testament to such reckless slaughter as it does standing in the centre of Tyne Cot.
