Just a short walk from Grote Markt this small military cemetery sits next to the old city defensive ramparts. On our visit we were the only ones present. So many of the headstones show that the soldiers died on the same day or within days...More

A lovely quiet place by the riverside. Not too far from the Katzmatten Brewery and Menin Gate. The walk to this place is a pleasant walk too along the ramparts.

Don't miss this little cemetery that lies adjacent to the Menin Gates Memorial. You will enjoy the peaceful area that offers views of the surrounding countryside from the ramparts of the city.

Sadly my visit was cut short by a torential downpour and thunderstorm so i didn't get chance to spend as much time there as i wanted to. I will certainly try and make time to visit the next time i am in Ypres.

We passed here again and looking in it is very well kept. Its a peaceful place to visit and just see a few of the war grave in Ypres. They are just a few of the many.

Came upon this small cemetery when walking the ramparts from the station to the Menin Gate. It’s small scale makes it more personal than the well know large cemeteries. Atmospheric.

My wife ad I are regular visitors to Ieper and a walk along the Ramparts is a regular feature for us. A visit to this cemetery is a must as it is so tranquil, it is impossible for us to walk by!!

A beautiful and tranquil little CWGC cemetary within the ramparts of Ypres (one of only two within the city walls). It is approximately a fifteen minute walk around the ramparts from the Menin Gate to the location and it is well worth the effort as...More
