This Commonwealth War Commission cemetery mainly contains the graves of Allied air crew including 484 RCAF members. Without a car, it's challenging to access but the best way is take the BOB train from Munich to Tegersee, which is a very scenic trip, and then take a taxi from Tegersee Bahnhof. It cost me about 50 euros for the trip there and back including 30 minutes at the cemet3ry.

We were lucky enough to go for the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice service. Stunning day and lots of people from many countries. The Germans were there in numbers too. It was a lovely service of remembrance and reconciliation. This is a place to visit any though.

Though it’s listed as the Durnbach War Cemetery, it is several kilometres north in a location identified as Moos on a map we got from the Information Centre in Gmund am Tegernsee.
The cemetery is lovingly and beautifully maintained. The visitors’ book shows that many who record their thoughts are German and it is sombre and moving reminder of the futility of war and the incalculable courage of the men buried here.
There are nearly 3,000 graves and cremation plaques here and the vast majority are airmen shot down over Bavaria, Wurtemberg, Austria, Hessen and Thuringia, brought from their scattered graves at the end of World War 2. The rest are men who were killed while escaping from prisoner of war camps in the same areas, or who died towards the end of the War on forced marches from the prisoner of war camps.

Didn't know this was near where we were staying. Drove past a couple of times then ventured in for a look. Lovely maintained memorial to those from primarily from member countries of the British Commonwealth including Canada, Australia & New Zealand with others from Poland, Norway & other patriots contributing to the NAZI's defeat. The front memorial says it all:

THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE
