Small, peaceful

A small gated WWI cemetery near the city center along the city wall and the river. A good historical choice for visit if you don't have much time.

Like all cemeteries around Ypres looked after by the CGC this one is wonderfully well kept, the setting is very peaceful and those laid to rest here deserve the very best

Nice small cemetery in peaceful location. Located in central Ypres, you can easily visit this cemetery on foot if you are staying in Ypres. While not as big as some of the other nearby cemeteries, it is well worth a visit, especially considering its setting and view.

What a beautiful spot...even when it was raining, so peaceful it belies its violent past. Wonderfully serene

This small cemetery which we came across by chance when walking the ramparts is in a charming situation and beautifully kept.

We walked the ramparts in Ypres and visited the cemetery which is located right next to the Lille Gate. Spent some time reading about the fallen and looking at the head stones.

A pleasant walk along the Ramparts to this quiet cemetery overlooking the river. An exhibition of photographs along the path gave us lots to think about.

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.
