One of the few German cemeteries in Belgium. Certainly worth a visit for ww1 tourists. Free visit of the cemetery. Remembrance of 100 years world war one.

This site is a bit hidden between Menen and Weveglem. More then 45000 German soldiers are burried here. The site shows again the madness of war and the useless losses and sacrifices that have been made!
