It is an Imprssive moving and sobering place and is a splendid memorial to these soldiers, It is the site of the nightly memorial ceremony and is easily the most important place to visit in Ypres

We had been at Menai Gate earlier in the day and seeing all the names on the gate was truly humbling, site is well look after and the gardens and views of the town are good.
This is excellent, the highlight of Ypres and any one who follows first world war sights.

I participated in a WW1 re-enactment at the St. Julien Memorial in the year 2000 as part of a European wide event and must say that St. Julien as well as all of the WW1 sites nearby are deserving of a visit to rel...
Canadian memorial, the Brooding Soldier, in a beautiful garden, is very thought provoking, and worth stopping to view.

Bedford House Cemetery
#4 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
Interesting site as with all these war grave cemeteries well kept very poignant and really wants you to find out more about its history.
Of all the sites I have visited, this is the most ideal for peaceful and tranquil reflection.
Ramparts Cemetery
#5 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
Set on the walls with a view over the canal, the setting is very tranquil and well worth a visit, on a fine day the walk along the ramparts is very relaxing.
You will enjoy the peaceful area that offers views of the surrounding countryside from the ramparts of the city.
Lest We Forget Battlefield Tours (Flanders)
#6 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
Plenty of sites in the area.
The Australian embassy officials were interested in our story of how close AWP Jones's burial site at Westhoek was to where the Zonnebeke '5' were found.
Saint George's Memorial Church
#7 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
A great place to get a view of the range of regiments that served in the Great War by checking the brass plaques and cushions on the walls and seats.
Unmissable Site in Ypres
Langemark Cemetery Langemark 4.6 km away
#1 of 2 Sights & Landmarks in Langemark
Unlike Commonwealth War Graves, German soldiers were mostly buried in mass graves, and the poignant new entrance tunnel to the site is meant to symbolise that.
Many German men interred here were university students, so it can be called the Students Cemetery, it is tree filled, so feels darker than some CWWG sites which tend to be more "garden" like.

Essex Farm Cemetery
#8 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
The site is walking distance along the canal in Ypres, while it is the area from which John McCrae wrote his poem the cemetery housed a fallen soldier who is 15 but also had the grave of one of the fallen soldiers...
Again, as with all Commonwealth War Graves Commission sites, it is very well kept.

Hooge Crater museum
#10 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
The displays of artifacts found around the crater and museum site were great to see & the life size displays of life on the Front around Ypres for all armies were very informative.
This was an interesting experience to view the crater caused by an underground detonation by the Allies during WW1 There's a few information boards around the crater which explain the battles around this site.
Saint Martin's Cathedral
#11 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
If you are visiting Ypres to visit the WWI Sites, stop by St. Martin's.
Market Square
#12 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
Ieper is a truly beautiful town, lovely brasseries on the square, chocolate shops, tourist sites and brasseries surround beautiful buildings a lovely place to visit.
Great views, lovely day and when lit at night, quirky shops, pop into Chez Marie for a truly local gift, and nice restaurants and bars to enjoy the emotion of the place.
Hill 60
#13 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
Hill 60 is one of the main sites remaining and a must see for WWI historians and others interested in the “Great War”.
This is a big site, with lots of information to read and a good walk way through the trees and over the hills.There is lots more to see if you wander off the path, but watch where you are walking.

Fantastic views over the town,well recommended,only a few euros extra to go to rooftop,which includes the belfry,tight stairs so might be hard for some people,but well worth the visit.
The seventeenth century Vauban ramparts
#15 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
Well preserved (and rebuilt in parts after WW1) defences that, nowadays, provide excellent walks with great views into the city and out over the surrounding area.
Calm and a great escape from the main sights.

Tyne Cot Cemetery Zonnebeke 11.6 km away
#1 of 6 Sights & Landmarks in Zonnebeke
This is the largest Commonwealth War Grave Commission (CWWG) cemetery in the world and is built on the site of the Battle of Passchendaele (3rd battle of Ypres 1917).
If visiting the salient Tyne Cot is surely a must being the largest cemetery, with a view back over the fields towards Ypres which the Commonwealth forces had to cross during Ypres 3 - Passchendaele.

Hooge Crater Cemetery
#17 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
This cemetery is one of the few to be found constructed on a slight slope and it has a wonderful SW aspect with views over towards Sanctuary Wood.
Like all the cemeteries, the CWGC does an amazing job maintaining all these sites for relatives and visitors.
Sanctuary Wood
#18 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
Beyond the Canadian memorial that offers a peaceful and panoramic view across to Ypres, the private museum is a treasure trove of memorabilia from Hill 62, the local area and WWI in general .
Amazing and surreal, make sure you take wellies as we did to make the most of this awe inspiring landmark.

CWGC offers free walking tours on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 4:30, and Sundays at 2, led by knowledgeable interns who explain the headstones and other features which apply at all CWGC sites.

Welsh Memorial in Flanders Campaign Langemark 4.3 km away
#2 of 2 Sights & Landmarks in Langemark
The site has benefited from the planting of trees and general landscaping and after only two years there is a patina on the magnificent Red Dragon which strands proudly on the top of the four Welsh boulders.
The huge bronze dragon on top of the Cromlech (standing stones) is one of the best sights to see on the Pilkem Ridge.
Sanctuary Wood Museum (Hill 62) Zillebeke
#1 of 3 Sights & Landmarks in Zillebeke
Visit the memorial at the top of Hill 62 first the view acros to Ypres is stunning even on a cold February day.
To walk the trenches & explore the tunnels on this site is so emotional.

Battle of Polygon Wood Zonnebeke 12.6 km away
#2 of 6 Sights & Landmarks in Zonnebeke
Polygon Wood is the smaller of the two, an in-place burial ground that highlights how even the most disorganized, impromptu burial sites from mid-campaign can be transformed into something beautiful.
The Polygon Wood area is the site of a battle (now a wooded preserve with some walking paths), and two cemeteries.

The Black Watch
#22 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
... British defensive battle of the First World War, if you get the chance to visit it, please do and if you are Scottish, from an Englishmans point of view you have a moral obligation to see it just the once!
The story about this point of interest is documented on site.
Brandhoek New Military Cemetery
#23 of 53 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
This is a unique historical site where one can greet Capt Medical Dr Noel Chavasse, who was granted twice the Victoria Cross during WW1.
As with all War Graves cemeteries, the site is immaculately maintained.
