Visit to Rampart Cemetery

What a peaceful, serene, extremely well looked after site. If anyone had the choice of a place to be honourably interred then this would be it.

The grave stones tell of all the fallen young men but the peaceful aspect of the cemetery, looking out over the water makes you feel that they are gently laid to rest in peace.

A walk along the ramparts at Ieper brings you to the Ramparts cemetery. It is in a beautiful location overlooking the water.

This cemetery was right next to our accommodation - Rooms de Voerman (see review), so we walked past it on our way into town. The sun was shining across the lake onto the graves and it was very poignant to wander round and see so many young men laid to rest in such a beautiful setting.

Another Belgian cemetery that is kept in immaculate condition. A tribute to the fallen. This should never be allowed to happen again.

Cemeteries are not exactly FUN things to visit, but one should go and see them as a reminder of the violent and bloody history of this area. Very well kept grounds, as are all in the Flanders area.

Visited as part of a walk around the ramparts (excellent example of Vaudan fortifications). Discovered the cemetery by the old Meninpoorte. It's the usual well maintained CWWG site, but in an evocative setting by the water. Interesting collection of Maori soldiers buried here, together with engineers. Probably party of the Mine teams.
