The difference in atmosphere between here and Essex Farm was marked. We didn't have to tell the students to be quiet - they were visibly affected by the solemness and understated nature of this place of remembrance

A visit to this or any other major German WWI cemetery is a must, as they are places with a strong, mournful atmosphere. Polar opposites to the CWGC cemeteries, they really reinforce the perspective that war is tragedy, regardless of your viewpoint. The overhanging trees...More

A stark contrast to commonwealth cemeteries (both should be visited and compared, it is very interesting), the German cemetery has a solemn and mournful feel to it. The black stone slabs indicate the burials of soldiers, and a mass burial site of 25,000 soldiers. There...More

Having visited the British and Allied cemeteries this comes as such a contrast. Much more sombre. No white stones and colourful rose bushes. However ....immaculately kept - respectful,peaceful and very dignified. Important to see the difference. A chance to remember the young men also just...More

It is worth noting that The German Government do not fully fund their war graves the majority of costs are met by public subscriptions and staffed by volunteers. - Yet the German economy is Europes strongest. The cemetery is daunting - grey and colourless in...More

As part of our WW1 tour and homage to all of those lost, we ensured we visited this site but I was not prepared for what I read. Truly shocking scale of fatalities and yet so subtly stated by this memorial. Heartbreaking and terrible for...More

The Germans buried all their soldiers together, all ranks. This cemetry has thousands of bodies lying in this grave yard. You will see head stones with lots of names all buried in the one grave.
