Menin Gate Memorial Ieper (Ypres)
It is an amazing memorial, built like a Roman Triumph Arch, excellently maintained and with good views from the upper section.
Having visited other equally emotionally moving sites around the world Auschwitz, Pearl Harbour and Nagasaki this is just as moving, seeing the inscriptions of all the British and Commonwealth war dead from the fi...

We booked a 1 day private tour with Reg for our group of 6 (4 adults, 1 teen and a 9 year old) and we were all transfixed by the stories and sites from 9am to 5.30pm.
Reg is very informative and takes you to the sights where you can picture the actual scenes as they occurred.
Last Post ceremony Ieper (Ypres)
We had been at Menai Gate earlier in the day and seeing all the names on the gate was truly humbling, site is well look after and the gardens and views of the town are good.
This is excellent, the highlight of Ypres and any one who follows first world war sights.

The city centre of Ghent is without any doubt the most wonderful in Belgium: very accessible, a perfect mix of shops and touristic attractions, great sights and wonderfull museas.
... more nice stuff to see in Bruges but the nice stuff in Ghent is nicer!! Just to walk along the canals or just sit and chill with a snack or beverage while admiring the fantastic buildings and views is a must-do.

This is a beautiful place that has captured a piece of history from War War I. Well kept with several landmarks indicating it's history.
A very peaceful site most beautifully kept by the Commonwealth War Grave Commission.
Saint Julien Memorial Ieper (Ypres)
I participated in a WW1 re-enactment at the St. Julien Memorial in the year 2000 as part of a European wide event and must say that St. Julien as well as all of the WW1 sites nearby are deserving of a visit to rel...
Canadian memorial, the Brooding Soldier, in a beautiful garden, is very thought provoking, and worth stopping to view.

One of the most visited Landmarks in Brussels , this place is just stunning with the colorful guilded house and the the fascinating architecture and well arranged houses, its really a vibrant square indeed.
The grand place it's an UNESCO World Heritage Site and I could see why! It's such a beautiful place with those old guild houses, including the town hall and the museum of the city.

Brilliant situated on the top of a hill, overlooking the valey of Abel to the south , with clear view visibility is up to approx 50 km.
If you're an American you might have different views on the US involvement in these foreign wars, but you should be extremely proud of the way these cemeteries are lovingly cared for.

We live in Canada and the tour therefore had a Canadian slant to many of the sites that we visited.
The Australian embassy officials were interested in our story of how close AWP Jones's burial site at Westhoek was to where the Zonnebeke '5' were found.
Central Station Antwerp
It is art per se, fantastic building and very well integrated with the modern services that we use nowadays, take a moment here to appreciate the ceiling and take a walk through the stairs to have a view.
Antwerp indeed has many attractions and sights to visit, and the central railway station is an excellent place to start, especially if you're arriving by train.

Rozenhoedkaai Bruges
However the view on this corner truly is amazing - so if you cannot beat them, then join them ;-) There are several boat tours which are worth doing.
Yes, it is the most photographed place, but for a reason, it is pretty amazing, and the views are lovely, what i thought it was even better was to have a drink in the porch area, the bar there is 2Be, which is a p...
Fort Eben-Emael Eben-Emael
One can visit the site on weekends, with the tours leaving at specific times, so you need to check beforehand on their website.
visiting this cemetry gives good insight of the number of nationalities that participated in WW1.The visiting centre is very instructive.The site is worth .
Over the years I have visited many of the sites associated with the battles of the Western Front in World War I. My grandfather served in the Royal Army Medical Corps in the conflict and was lucky enough to survive.
Bedford House Cemetery Ieper (Ypres)
Interesting site as with all these war grave cemeteries well kept very poignant and really wants you to find out more about its history.
Of all the sites I have visited, this is the most ideal for peaceful and tranquil reflection.
There are peaceful canals flowing by, views of the lovely cathedral and other churches, boat trips to be taken, and a variety of great restaurants from which to watch the world go by.
Surrounded by historic buildings, some dating back to 13th Century, this was a fascinating and interesting spot to stroll around and take in the sights and sounds.

It is a landmark of the city and its Brabantine Late Gothic architectural style, crafted in lace-like detail is simply stunning.
During summertime, go and grab a Stella, Louvain beer, on a terrace while enjoying the terrific view of this magnificent monument.

It is hard to compare landmarks in Brugge, as every place is unique, well preserved and beautiful, but I would say Burg is the nicest of them all.
7 Ways to experience it
There are a lot of places to sit and enjoy the view, if you are a senior, kid or an adult looking for adventure it's a place that suits all.
You cross by boat (takes one minute) costs 1 euro per person (aller retour :- ) ). Restaurant is not cheap but it has great Belgian dishes and beautiful views.
Ramparts Cemetery Ieper (Ypres)
The walk is along the water and many information plaques tell the history of Ypres the ramparts cemetery itself is a small, well kept cemetery, with a nice view of the river..
You will enjoy the peaceful area that offers views of the surrounding countryside from the ramparts of the city.
Fantastic building with beautiful views, grab yourself a Belgian waffle from near the Mannequin Pis and come to the square and admire the Town Hall and its surrounding buildings as you tuck into your Belgian delight!
... a good navigation aid, especially if like me your wanderings are a bit random as you take in all the sights of this wonderfully hospitable European capital; an architectural marvel - lasting for centuries, sti...

Fort Breendonk Willebroek
Wherever there is an audio stop you received very detailed information about that site.
Astonishing view into WW2 cruelty.
Langemark Cemetery 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.

Cogels Osylei Antwerp
Cost €3, get off a couple of stops before the station at the round about and wander about for a while to view the stunning architecture and ornamentation.
Don't forget in the next street (Pretoriastraat) is another free site to see, amazing graffiti about a mile long.
Zurenborg Antwerp
Hence, this neighboorhood gives a unique view on the Art Nouveau movement of the time.
