This is a cemetery where they truly rest in peace, such a quiet environment. Well maintained, under the trees and only some birds singing for the statues of Käthe Kollwitz at the end of the field.

Vladslo WW1 Cemetary Diksmuide Belgium is very sobering an entire generation lost, its not as if the soldiers or their families really had a choice. Very emotional sad.

Completely different set up to the commonwealth graves. A contrast that is hard to explain needs to be seen to truly understand.

Sombre German Cemetery for over 25,000 soldiers killed in WW1, including Musketier Peter Kollowitz killed in October 1914. The wonderful Grieving Parents sculptures by Kath Kollowitz face the cemetery and the father figure looks directly at the grave of Peter Kollowitz and 19 other soldiers.

This cemetery is a moving, peace tribute to German military personnel who died in this area during World War I. There are two beautiful sculptures at the 12 o'clock end of the cemetery. This is a "must see" for any history buff.

Our morning tour by Over the Top included this amongst other historic sites. This site is dark and respectful and a completely different view point of the Commonwealth war cemeteries. It is surrounded by tall oak trees and each tomb stone is dark granite with...More

I've wanted to see this place since I was in first year university and learned about Kathe Kollwitz. I was not disappointed. The cemetery is (like the three other German war cemeteries I've seen), very sombre and minimalist, compared to Commonwealth cemeteries, in accordance with...More

The cemetery was beautiful with the German oak trees creating a quiet spot! The Grieving Parents statue is moving- depicts what every parent must go through emotionally losing a child to war. A contrast to the commonwealth graves! We walked through "praatbos" to see the...More
