Trip Planner: Europe / Luxembourg / Luxembourg District / Sandweiler / Sandweiler German Military Cemetery, Luxembourg
The final resting place of almost 11,000 German servicemen from the Battle of the Bulge, Sandweiler German Military Cemetery, Luxembourg wasn't founded until 1955. Almost half of the soldiers that are buried there shared communal graves during World War I in different cemeteries, but in 1952 an agreement between Luxembourg and Germany was signed, and a special cemetery was designated for the fallen fighters. The other half were buried during the war by the American war graves service. The special cemetery is a way to honor the fallen, even those that were enemies during the war. The last of the graves were added in 2007, when an unknown German soldier was discovered in a wooded area. The simple gravestones, mostly crosses, cover an area of manicured grass between trees.

Nibelungo sito cimiteriale dove sono sepolti i caduti Tedeschi (anche 4 per tomba). Manca la cura maniacale del verde come in quello Americano, ma un posto dove ragionare sulla follia della guerra. more »Nibelung cemetery site where are buried the dead Germans (also 4 for tomba). Lacks the obsessive attention of green as in the American one, but a place to reflect on the folly of war.

Un lieu de mémoire qui inspire le respect à toutes ces victimes de la guerre et peu importe s'il s'agit de soldats de l'armée vaincue ou des vainqueurs. Ce sont des hommes qui reposent là.

A beautiful and sad place and a stark contrast to the American cemetery down the street. Both are must sees for anyone traveling in the area.

As someone who loves to explore cemeteries, the Deutscher Soldaten Friedhof Sandweiler is a wonderful site to visit after touring the American Military Cemetery right next door. It has a darker feel, totally a different experience from the American manicured lawns and bright headstones. Don't miss it.
