"The Menin Gate" Menin Gate Tip by Mahieu
Menin Gate, Ieper: 54 reviews and 122 photos
The famous British war memorial of the First World War and by far the most important edifice in Ieper to the British visitor. The Gate was built in honour of the 54.896 soldiers who fell in Ypres Salient between 1914-1917 and whose bodies could not be found or identified. All these names are engraved on its walls. Every evening, even during winter, at 8 p.m. the "Last Post" is sounded by buglers of the fire brigade.
As you can see in the picture, a lot of tourists still put down flowers on the Gate to commemorate their relatives who died during the Great War.
Address: End of Menenstraat
