"Silent witnesses of the Great War" Langemark by myriam_c

Langemark Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 37 photos

On our "Battlefield Tour" in Western Flanders we stopped at the dark and sombre Deutscher Soldatenfriedhof in Langemark. Even on this nice and sunny day the cemetary was cold and gloomy.

These four soldiers look out over the cemetary.

At the entrance of the cemetary oak panels record the names of the 'student' soldiers who died in the Great War, defending Langemark.
Just beyond the entrance there is a mass burial pit containing the remains of thousands of men.
