Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I knew that the Germans had made a stand in Egypt against the allies. This place the number of German Soldiers who lost their oh es in the battle of Alamein. It is a reverent place that lets people, no matter the side they were on to honor the war dead.

We visited the WWII German Cemetary built in memory of the German army men who lost their lives during the Al Alamein Battlefield war against the British Armed Forces at the time.

The Shrine is a state of the art architecture building and the burial chambers inside are distributed according to the different regions in Germany above which a marble sign includes the names of those who died.

A must visit for anyone in that area.

Again my second visit. Great long lists of names not in my opinion as impressive as seeing rows upon rows of uniform headstones. But to get equilibrium it is worth visiting.

A traditional stop for military history buffs. Located just off the Alexandria - Marsa Matruh Road (International Coastal Road), so it's an easy stop if you're visiting the area by car.

No entry fee, but if a guide opens up the cemetery for you and provides a tour, it's polite and expected to give him a tip. The guide there when I went spoke excellent english and was very professional.

Standing the test of time and memories long gone remembering and as a reminder how war ends in complete silence and time comes to a stand still moment. A must see for "all of those born beneath an angry star, lest we forget how fragile we are "

How do you honor the brave men who fought for a reviled regime? It is a difficult thing to get right. This memorial may be a bit ponderous but does it well. From the outside it looks like a crusader castle but inside it is an open air cloister with a slightly incongruous obelisk at the centre. What is less obvious than the British and Commonwealth Cemetery is the thousands of remains buried here. It is only looking at list after list of the names of the dead that you realise the significance of the site. It is however well worth a visit and to contemplate the bravery of these soldiers in such a fierce battle.

A dusty town 100km west of Alexandria with a white sandy beach providing a stunning contrast against the deep blue Mediterranean, El Alamein is not the most straightforward of places to reach unless by return taxi (LE400-LE600) or self-drive hire. To many Egyptians it is simply another north coast town and few that we met knew of the existing memorials. There is no train service and Microbuses leave from Alexandria’s ‘new bus station’ (taxi from downtown) at frequent intervals (LE10 one-way and not the most comfortable way to travel) or, for LE50, ‘West & Mid Delta’ sell a one-way ticket on the hourly coach service for Marsa Matrouh (200km further west) and the driver will stop on the main highway at El Alamein on request. All signs at the bus station are in Arabic and the journey to El Alamein takes about one hour along a fairly straight highway.
The Marsa Matrouh service, however, does not stop on its return to Alexandria and a Microbus return is required: this can be caught at the microbus stop on the main highway adjacent to the Greek War Cemetery. From the stops on the main highway, a taxi (not easily available) to/from the War Museum and Commonwealth Memorial/Cemetery may be preferable in the hot sunshine.
For LE200 we were able to hire a taxi that took us to the War Museum/Commonwealth Memorial, German War Memorial (3km west) and Italian War Memorial (8km west), about 4 hours total in El Alamein. It would have been easy to spend much longer.
3km further west from the town and situated on a small hill-top close to the sea, the German War Memorial can be recognised from a distance by its octagonal fortress-like appearance and dominated by the German and Egyptian flags. With free access at the end of a long track from the main highway, over 4000 Germans lie within and beneath its walls and a guide is available if desired.
About 24km south of the main highway and ideally accessible by 4x4 vehicle, there are numerous trenches from the Second World War that can be visited together with an Italian underground bunker complex. A guide is recommended and Mr Magdi at the German War Memorial can make the necessary arrangements with 24 hours’ notice.
