Ypres, In Flanders Fields Museum

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $99 USD / Adult
Journey into the Belgian province of West Flanders to discover its war-torn heritage. On this hallowed ground surrounding the town of Ypres, some of the bloodiest fighting of World War I unfolded. The losses were shattering – more than 500,000 dead and over one million wounded. Begin with a drive to Tyne Cot Cemetery, just outside Ypres, where more than 11,900 British servicemen are laid to rest. Pay your respects before continuing to the "In Flanders Fields Museum", which chronicles the region's epic battles. Hear the stirring poem from which the museum takes its name, and come to truly comprehend the magnitude of the first great war. Venture on to Essex Farm and the Menin Gate, a memorial inscribed with the names of 54,896 British soldiers whose remains were never recovered. Prepare for a moving, insightful and unfiltered look at Belgium's war years. This tour is provided by an operator that has been third-party certified to meet the Global Sustainable Tourism Council's Criteria for Tour Operators.
