“Peaceful visit”

German War Cemetery
Ranked #1 of 6 things to do in Maleme

Attraction details
Reviewed September 5, 2013

If in Maleme, do visit the German war cemetery if you are interested in history at all. A beautiful and very peaceful place. More than 3000 German soldiers who fought in WWII are buried here. No charge for entry, but a small donation is welcome.

Read first something about wartime history of Crete and especially Maleme and go then to see the cemetery.

Just up the hill from Mike's Hotel, a peaceful and thought-provoking place to sit. Over 3,000 German soldiers are buried there, most named on their gravestones. Small visitors centre with info in Greek, German and English about the Crete invasion and occupation during WWII

Definitely worth a visit especially if you are interested in history. On your way up to the cemetry you will see there is a private collection of items relating to the war. A 2 euro charge for entry.
