This will be short - You do not want to miss the American Cemetery that is done incredibly well and is absolutely moving (and so well taken care of). Yet if you have time you must visit the German Cemetery to gain that perspective -...More
The place where the soldiers who served under the German insignia rest. Like all cemeteries, piety prevails, but the place has something ancient and the central pyre is reminiscent of something barbaric and ancient. In this place the sensations are multiple and often mix and...More
Not known to most Americans, this cemetery contains the graves of 21,222 German soldiers. Created shortly after the war to bury the remains of both sides, it was completely revised with American dead being moved to the American cemetery and German dead reburied here. It...More
”History belongs to the winners”, never have that been more true than when you walk in the German soldiers cemetery. Twice or almost three times the amount of bodies at the American cemetery. And while the Americans were collected for the entire French campaign, these...More
I never could imagine why they would bury Germans in France until we could the Normandy sightseeing tour and it was all explained by our guide. Without a guide here it's just another cemetery so I suggest you pop for a guide. Well worth it

It says... Dunkel wolbt sich der Hugel uber dem Grab der Soldaten. Dunkel steht Gottes Gebot über den Toten des Krieges. Hell aber leuchtet der Himmel uber den ragenden Kreuzen. Heller noch leuchtet ihr Trost : Gott has das letzte Wort.
Dark is the mound that arches above the soldiers' grave. Dark stands God's commandment over the war dead. But bright are the heavens above the looming cross. Brighter yet shines their solace : God has the final word.
Anyone can visit and it is open quite late, at least until 8 pm. We arrived too late for the American cemetary and had to postpone it until the next day. It worked out great that La Cambe was still open when we stopped by... More
Anyone can visit and it is open quite late, at least until 8 pm. We arrived too late for the American cemetary and had to postpone it until the next day. It worked out great that La Cambe was still open when we stopped by. We were the only ones there at that time (after 7pm).
