  • A ln amazing peaceful place, many young people lie here peaceful under the trees and stars. Worth the visit, bit off the beaten track but highly recommended. Toilets are working, the information centre is getting a rebuild by the looks of it.
  • Peaceful German World War II cemetery. Nicely maintained and highly symobistic. Many of the soldiers resting here till this day are unknown.
