Most of people that lay here are German soldiers who did their military service, but you will also find SS members and war criminals, Dutch collaborators, Wehrmacht volunteers from other countries and some civilians, including women and children.
The War Cemetery is open daily for visitors and accessible to wheelchair users. It is also possible to book a guided tour. During the tour you get an insight into the biographies of the war dead resting here and the interesting and complex history of this place is dealt with.
Since 2021 there has also been a visitor centre offering practical information. In the new multimedia exhibition you can discover for yourself the stories behind the crosses. Using data visualisations, you can get an impressive insight into the characteristics of the cemetery and thus a unique look at the German side of the Second World War in the Netherlands. You can also search for fallen soldiers and their life stories in the database.
The exhibition is open daily from 9:00 to 17:00 and can be visited free of charge.
