German Military Cemetery Langemark

Cemeteries German
Langemark

The sombreness is very much in evidence at the German military cemetery - Deutcher Soldatenfriedhof - in Langemark. However, its powerful simplicity lends a poignant air to this haunting burial ground. Behind the monumental entrance building lie about 44 300 soldiers, half of them in a mass grave. Over 3 000 cadets and student volunteers are among the dead. They were killed in October 1914 during the futile attempts to break though to Ypres. Hence the cemetery is also known as the Studentenfriedhof.

Open daily from sunrise to sunset. Free entry.
