  Menin Gate in the evening, something special!
by Pavlik_NL

Since 1928 their is a ceremony in Ieper that will - without a doubt - give you wet eyes. When you want to experience this beautiful, but also emotional happening, then be at 20:00 hours exactly at the Meense Poort (Menin Gate). You will not be alone, a many will come, which makes the feeling only stronger. Now, 86 years (it's 2004) after the tragedy ended in Flanders (and the Western frontline) every evening at eight o-clock sharp the Last Post is sounding under the Menin Gate (more next tip).
