  • Parking easy, toilets clean and open. Very different to the other cemetery’s in the area. Very well maintained. Definitely worth a visit to experience the comparison

  • An excellent evident of world wars. I am glad that I saw what I learned in class as a theory physically. The Great Tanker, Micheal Wittman, whose ability and courage made me read a lot of military strategies, is a crucial person whose history made me see this place.
  • A tough place to visit given Germany's role in the war. My wife couldn't bring herself to get out of the car, but I feel it is important to see this other bookend of the war in order to get the full context.
