Ypres and the Great War

Explore WWI

You can visit the many WWI sites in the Ypres Salient area or further in the Flanders Fields Country or in France, in the departments of the Somme, Pas de Calais, Nord and Aisne. You can learn more about WWI history or personal stories in one of the WWI museums.

Other options to explore WWI is by following a signposted car route, Ypres Salient autoroute or by bike with the theme route on the Ypres Salient.

If you want to join one of the tours in a minibus with excellent English speaking guides, there is a large offer of private companies who organise daily tours in the Ypres Salient area or to the Somme Battlefield area.
