Langemark Cemetery Langemark, Belgium 41.1 km away
#1 of 2 Sights & Landmarks in Langemark
Unlike Commonwealth War Graves, German soldiers were mostly buried in mass graves, and the poignant new entrance tunnel to the site is meant to symbolise that.
Many German men interred here were university students, so it can be called the Students Cemetery, it is tree filled, so feels darker than some CWWG sites which tend to be more "garden" like.
