”History belongs to the winners”, never have that been more true than when you walk in the German soldiers cemetery. Twice or almost three times the amount of bodies at the American cemetery. And while the Americans were collected for the entire French campaign, these...More

I never could imagine why they would bury Germans in France until we could the Normandy sightseeing tour and it was all explained by our guide. Without a guide here it's just another cemetery so I suggest you pop for a guide. Well worth it

Very sobering and sad, but worth the visit. Thousands of graves of young men who were conscripted by German army. A vast contrast to the beauty of American and British cemeteries.

Part of our D-Day tour. Never knew of its existence. Magnificent grounds. Peaceful resting place for over 21,000 WW2 German personnel.

Attended as part of the Leger Battlefield Tours. Totally different feeling and much larger compared to the British and American cemeteries, with over 22,000 buried here. Reminds you of that fact, that soldiers fight and die on both sides, for their country / beliefs, regardless...More

Don’t miss this cemetery, it’s real nice and reminds you of the horror of all wars. In every war soldiers fighting for their country.

I must admit, when I initially planned my trip to France the German Cemetery wasn't on my radar. I, quite frankly, didn't know about it. I am, however, quite pleased that I went. First of all, it is very close to Omaha Beach and the...More

Very sombre experience to see the headstones of 21,000+ German soldiers killed mainly following DDay in June to about August 1944. The information centre is well laid out to give clarification about the numbers and ages of the soldiers ( mostly young). There are also...More

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

Anyone can visit and it is open quite late, at least until 8 pm. We arrived too late for the American cemetary and had to postpone it until the next day. It worked out great that La Cambe was still open when we stopped by... More
