Peace Route

The Peace Route is a route which offers an ideal introduction to the Ypres Salient.

It starts in Ypres and first leads to the ‘Palingbeek' Provincial Park, Hill 60 and Hill 62 - three locations of great strategic significance for the armies of both sides. The route continues through pleasant countryside and passes a number of impressive military burial sites, including Tyne Cot Cemetery in Passendale, the German Soldatenfriedhof in Langemark and Essex Farm.
