Completely different from the Commonwealth war graves, 20,000+ German soldiers interned here, a sad and harrowing reflection of war.

This open cemetery is very different to other cemeteries in the nearby area. It’s a poignant reminder of the cost of the conflicts on D-Day and should be part of any tour of the area. There’s an impressive statue in the middle of the cemetery....More

Very different to the American cemetery but worth a visit. The ride on mower didn’t seem fitting as people were looking around, maybe maintenance should be early morning and late evening?

It's a german cemetery where is the grave of Witmann, panzers driver. It's quiet, calmed. A place also of respect for those young men who gave their lives in a war.

The grave markers give name, rank, and dates only. The staff at the adjacent visitor centre may help further.
