The Ramparts Cemetery overlooks the river as do the Maori soldiers who are resting there. As always, a beautifully kept cemetery.

Stopped by on our ramparts walk and found it to be a peaceful location looking over the water. Though not essential it's worth a visit!

we took a short stroll along the ramparts of Ypres and came to the peaceful Ramparts Cemetery which I believe is the only CWGC cemetery within the walls of the city.

A small war cemetery at the edge of Ypres set on the riverbank on a small hill. Beautiful peaceful cemetery that you can just pause and watch the river meandering by.

A well maintained cemetery immediately next to the Lille Gate. It is small with a few New Zealand Maori tombstones among others.
