  • Sobering to say the least. The remains of 5000 Unknown French Soldiers are buried here. :-( a peace place now with beautiful views, on a hill where so much WW1 action took place. Not far away...

  • A haunting monument to the (often overlooked) French soldiers who fought and died in Belgium. Surrounded by dark woods, the statue of "Victory" by sculptor Adolphe Masselot oversees a large French Ossuary further down the hill. Masselot invites the visitor to ask themselves the question "what is the price of victory?". Worth a visit even though the cobbles up Kemmelberg burst a tyre!
