Saint Julien Memorial Ieper (Ypres) 2.4 km away
#3 of 52 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
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.

Langemark Cemetery Langemark 2.9 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.

Menin Gate Memorial Ieper (Ypres) 8.4 km away
#1 of 52 Sights & Landmarks in Ieper (Ypres)
It is an amazing memorial, built like a Roman Triumph Arch, excellently maintained and with good views from the upper section.
Having visited other equally emotionally moving sites around the world Auschwitz, Pearl Harbour and Nagasaki this is just as moving, seeing the inscriptions of all the British and Commonwealth war dead from the fi...

Welsh Memorial in Flanders Campaign Langemark 4.4 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.

The Passchendaele Canadian Memorial Zonnebeke 4.6 km away
#3 of 6 Sights & Landmarks in Zonnebeke
A beautiful tended site that truly made you feel, proud, humble and sad.
This memorial is at the former site of Crest Farm in sight of Passchendaele church and would have been a place of hell a century ago.
Essex Farm Cemetery Ieper (Ypres) 8.0 km away
#8 of 52 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.
