When in Ypres, there is much to be remembered. With deeply engrained links to World War One, you will experience a highly moving Christmas tour as there are many war cemeteries and monuments throughout the city and in the nearby area.
From October 1914 until October 1918 the battlefield was close to the centre of Ypres."The trenches had been dug from North to South to form an arch around Ypres. In that famous Ypres Salient no fewer than five bloody battles were fought. In the 1920s more than 150 military cemeteries were built in and around the city and monuments were erected. Menin Gate being the most important." ( Ypres Tourist Office ).
