Reading some of the other reviews of the Langemark Friedhof, it is clear that many visitors have rather missed the point. Under the terms of the Versailles Treaty, the Germans were forbidden from honouring their war dead in the conventional manner (upright headstones with crosses,...More

(September 2015) Only open to look at some pictures, as it is being refurbished. A 3 foot wall surrounds the actual cemetery. I was able to scale this and look at some of the graves. Most of them say "20 Unbekannte Deutsche Soldaten" (20 unknown...More

This cemetery serves as an important reminder of the great losses experienced on both sides of the fighting. It highlights the tragedy of war and is a reminder that all who died were someone's son, father or brother. You will notice many contrasts in the...More

This was the second of three cemeteries we visited during a short break to Bruges and Ypres. We had visited Essex Farm previously and one can't help but feel moved when observing all of the grave stones - many marking the grave of an unknown...More

August 30, 2018 - We stopped at Langemark Cemetery (German Cemetery) while on a day trip to Flanders and the Ypres area of Belgium. Unlike some of the WW One cemetery's, Larngmark's gravestones are flat. This is one of four German cemetery's located in Belgium...More

The Ypres area is dotted with war cemeteries, many of which are worthwhile visiting. This particular cemetery helps remembering that war means a huge loss of life, whether you were on the winning side or not. And whether you were young or old.

It wasn’t just British and Allied lives that were lost. This cemetery is for the thousands of students and old soldiers who were sent to the front line in 1914 and were killed by the British and Allied forces. A completely different type of cemetery...More

Like all cemeteries around Flanders you cannot help being moved by the sacrifices made on both sides of the Great War. Spotless and well maintained.

It serves as a German memorial, but with mass graves and little light along with disrepair and cracked headstones, it's not the nicest place to visit.

If you visit Tyne Cot, you see a bright, open cemetery, with white gravestones and colorful flowers. That is a cemetery of victors. Come to this cemetery to see the marked contrast that is the last resting place of the defeated. It is somber and...More

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
