Here it was interesting to see the rows of memorial stones and the way in which they were laid out with all the different regiments, and if anyone had family in KOSB, Staffs Lancashire regiments or others, then both here and at valkenwaard war cemetery, there is a book where you can find out which grave or row, and perhaps...

This is one of the War Cemetaries in Arnhem and surounding. So sad to see how many young people had to die for their land. Have a respect to all of them. Accross this war cemetary, is Oosterbeek cemetary and there you can find some Commonwealth War Graves, too. Don't forget to visit the "Royal Army Service Corp" monument, near... More

This is a clean, quiet , peaceful and beautiful place in the middle of the woods, quite far from Arnhem city center; actually is near Oosterbeek. There are the graves of the victims from World War 2, soldiers and children as well. Very sad and impressive...feels like it's a sacred natural place where you wouldn't dare to enter and disturb.

The Airborne cemetery is located opposite the regular cemetery just outside Oosterbeek. There is ample parking space. The regular cemetery also holds a few graves from the war. The Airborne Cemetery is mainly filled with graves from Brittish, Welsh and Scottish airmen, that have been killed during the Second World War, when trying to liberate the city of Arnhem from...

There is a saying that only the war dead know the true horrors of war, well the reminders of the war are buried here and some still remain waiting to be reunited with their Airborne brothers in this beautiful part of Holland. And every year the children and locals pay their respects to fallen that are buried beneath their feet.... More

Like most of the Commonwealth cemetries a well maintained, peaceful and impressive cemetery. Nicely situated just outside of Oosterbeek. Every 1st Saturday in September during the so called 'Airborne Wandeltocht', more than 35.000 hikers visit the Cemetery. You should also visit The Air Dispatchers monument (around 100 meters to the North of the main entrance).

A beautiful little cemetery that is well mentioned, peaceful and a perfect resting place for those unfortunate enough to have required a place. Easy walking distance of the museum so perfect to tie in with a visit.

As with all British war cemetaries this place is well tended and a sobering reminder of the effects of war. Will mankind ever learn?
