We visited this cemetery on October 18th. In front of the cemetery there is a parking lot, where you also can find an information board about the history of this German War Cemetery. Inside on the far left side there are the restrooms. It is...More

If you are in Normandy and are going to visit the WW2 sites and / or are going to the US cemetery - stop here first. This is an austere reminder of the war, without the over-the-top patriotism of the US cemetery. You need to...More

This cemetery should not be missed during your trip. If you are able to research some of the individuals buried here before you go, it will provide you additional insight as you visit the cemetery.

If you are visiting the Allied war cemeteries in Normandy it is really worthwhile to visit this German Cemetery if just to compare the differences between the American, Commenwealth and German burial sites, very interesting and moving.

Sue B, your xenophobia against the USA notwithstanding, there is nothing jingoistic about the Normandy American cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer or Ranville or the many other American, British and Canadian cemeteries. If you see celebration at any of these sites, you are terribly misguided. Your derogatory...More
