Early in the morning, foggy, dew on the grass, gray, cloudy, dark, somber, reverent, peaceful, moving.

After visiting numerous WWII sites in Normandy, we decided to visit the German Cemetery, La Cambe. In the WWII military exhibits that we’ve seen on this trip most have Nazi war memorabilia. There are no statements about right or wrong. There are just the facts...More

Over 22 000 soldiers are buried here. Many in shared graves, many with no known identity. The basalt crosses are a sombre reminder of the futilities of war. Last resting place of tank ace Michael Wittman and his tank crew.

A sombre and haunting place. The first hand accounts of people explained in the visitor centre give this place a sad and depressing feeling. Again a monument to the futility of war.

We visited the German Cemetery at La Cambe on our way to the D-Day beaches in Normandy and you see the price of war. The markers are dark and the cemetery gives a somber feeling when you see the price that Germany paid on those...More

When we took the Bayeux Shuttle American D-Day experience, this was our first stop. As we arrived early, we were initially the only ones present. Obviously, there is controversy in memorializing those who were fighting for the Axis forces, noting the nature of what took...More

Juno, Omaha & this Cemeteriy are must sees when visiting Normandy. Do not understand how TOURS give you the time to visit ALL D-Day sites especially when Museums are included. We spent 7 days BY CAR and could have seen a lot more.

A very somber site. We visited the American Cemetery, which can almost be viewed as majestic, before seeing La Cambe. The contrast is amazing. It's just a bit out of the way on the trip from Omaha Beach to Bayeaux, but it was a "must...More

We did not know this was here but the director of the American Cemetery told us to visit it. He was right it was a sullen contrast to the white crosses of the American one. The ages of the German soldiers was either very young...More

Remember the 1000's of germans who also lost their lives in the war. Pay your respects. The cemetry is very different from those of the allies sombre and thought provoking, laid out amongst the tall oak trees and maples.

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
