Interesting, if that is the tight word to use on this occasion. Poignant reminder of man's self destruction.

We went here on a lovely sunny day July 2014, we were about the only people there, it was quite and tranquil where you could look and think about the people who had died again to save us.

This is a tiny cemetery by the lakeside, but like all the others around the area it is always tidy, well kept and again so sad to see.

Come early in the morning and spend some time sitting gazing out at the water and reading the names on the tombs and bring a tissue

We walked around the rampart of Ypres before breakfast ending at the this small and tranquil cemetery. It is moving to see the groups of men who died within a few days of each other. Unlike th bigger cementries you can look at every grave so somehow it seemed more personal

Ypres Ramparts Cemetery is best visited after spending sometime at the Menin Gate with its list of nearly 55,000 war dead with no grave. Wander south - past the memorial to the contribution of Sikh and Gurkha soldiers during the First World War in the Ypres Salient, continue round the ramparts that date from many eras, evolving from the early...

This smaller cemetery is located off the main tourist track but worth a visit. It is located next to the moat and is designed so the graves overlook the water. Well worth the 15 minute walk from the main square.

You can park nearby (outside the pub that has a monthly meeting regarding WW1 tanks for those that are interested) and stroll to the cemetery that is very well maintained and honours those who fell in battle. Worth a visit.
