In Flanders Fields, war museum Ieper - Ieper

In Flanders Fields, war museum Ieper

War Museum Flanders Field Museum Review

You can't miss a visit to the War Museum!
It is right up there in the centre, housed in the Laken Hallen.
I don't add an entrance fee as it can change over the years and accordingly to offered reductions.
However I can tell you that this ticket is a combined ticket with two other local musea.
The problem is you might not get the time to visit. Not if you want to cycle around as Sarah and John (macdoggie) did on their visit.
You can have a b-day trip ticket "train/entrance" at the trainstation should you come by train.

I was pleased that since my previous visit 2 years ago, a lot new things were added in the museum.

Address: Lakenhalle, Grote Markt 34, B-8900 Ieper

Menin Gate - Ieper

Menin Gate

Menin gate Menin Gate Review

Ypres Salient. The Meense Poort, Menin Gate, only a few minutes walk from the market square, is the memorial statue, built on the site of the old gate which served as the main route for British soldiers heading for the front. It's wall is covered with names of 50000 British and Commonwealth soldiers who died in Ypres Salient, but never had a grave, who where missing or burried "Only known to God". Here since 1929, every evening at 8 pm, the Last Post is sounded.
When you are there, you can go upon the stairs and walk around, even on the outside the walls are covered with names. It is impressive!

Address: city walls, gate leading towards Menin
