  • 18km north of Rovaniemi are over 2000 deutscheSoldaten of the 2.Weltkrieges in a wooded area. To reach the impressive but oppressive Memorial on a forest path, 500 m / 5 min. walk from the car park. Eight rows of limestone panels with the name, rank, birth and mortality data of the fallen resting here are in the Tomb building with Memorial room. Under each name Panel, the corresponding Sakrophage are located. Open from the 1st April till 30th September. Mosquito repellent don't forget there are many mosquitoes on the way! (July)
