This cemetery is very thought provoking, each visitor will experience different emotions to some degree, not just because of the waste of young life and the number of dead. These are the obvious thoughts but Vladslo has an atmosphere of its own, it also gives...More

Hard to describe; peaceful, sad, wonderful, quiet, reflective, historic, soulful. But, in any case, well worth a visit for its beauty of situation and the value of its solemnity. There is purpose in being here. And, the Kathe Kollwitz scupture of Grieveing Parents is profoundly...More

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

It was so interesting to see the different approach, stones laid flat not upright. It was much darker in atmosphere and visually. The memorial with poppies and one white one was very moving. Well worth the visit, the horrors of the mustard gas and the...More

This cemetery is such a contrast to others in the region and well worth a visit for a more balanced view of the conflicts. It isn't far from the nearest town and is a very peaceful resting place.

Impressive number of German soldiers buried on these grounds. But grief gets a face in the form of the statue 'The Grieving Parents' of Käthe Kollwitz. She worked for 15 years on the statues and they were placed in front of the grave of her...More

Enough parking place around, you can make a walk through the forest around the cemetery. The statue of Kathe Kollwitch is very impressing. You can feel the pain of both the parents about the loss of their son. A must! At about 1 km there...More
