  • This is a military cemetery, monument and, if you got further up the hill past the cemetery, actual French and German Trenches. You get to walk the trenches and see some of the still present bullet...  more »
  • Even for uninterested it is a reminder of what happened there. The museum close to cemetery is good as well. Nice hike over the battlefield  more »
  • Nice place of memories of WW1 The hiking within the trench is about 2hours
  • Great experience for those interested in the Great War. Walking the WWI battlefield does require some hiking, and a couple of hours. I thought the hike was well worth the time taken. Between the memorial, the trenches and bunkers, the smaller memorials, and the views I found it all very rewarding.
