On my Eurotrip I decided to stop in Ypres, Belgium and visit Rampart's Cemetery, or better known to us Canadians as Flander's Fields. It was very humbling to see and if you stay till six, you will see them perform their nightly ceremony for the fallen soldiers.

This cemetery was beyond the ramparts of the Menin Gate. Small and easy to miss but worth a visit. Go up to the ramparts of the Menin gate then through the memorial garden until you come to the cemetery beyond.

After passing the Lille Gate you will see this cemetery. Rampart cemetery is small compare with other cemetery we've visited in Ieper. But it still very impressive

We had previously been to Lisjeenhoek and Tyne Cot cemeteries and whilst on a walk from our excellent B&B in Ypres around the city wall we found this CWGC, although we had no historic connection with this cemetery we found it a very peaceful, humbling experience to be here. It is a lovely place. Respect.

This is one of the smaller cemeteries on the salient. It is situated next to the Lille Gate on the top of the Ramparts overlooking the moat. It remains, in my mind, an idilic location, the best I know of.

I had wanted to visit Ramparts for a long time, and it did not disappoint. As beautifully kept as all Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemeteries, it has a magnificent setting on the medieval ramparts of Ieper (Ypres) overlooking the moat. The cemetery has a number of notable burials, and there is plenty of information on-line to explain these. I was... More

This is the best cemetery in my opinion on the battlefield. Whilst it is located next to the Lille Gate you can sit and reflect on what happened overlooking the moat

Situated on the ramparts about a kilometre from the Menin Gate this cemetery leads down to the banks of the moat which surrounds part of the town. The flowers and shrubs were absolutely stunning this June and this is well worth the walk a walk around the ramparts or through the town to see it.
