Heilig Hart Plein 2
Diksmuide, BE 8600 Map It

Diksmuide, situated in the middle of Flanders Fields, is a destination filled with sheer wonder . The cloth industry and dairy production once made this town rich . Hence you can still discover surprisingly picturesque corners while walking through the old town . Many monuments, cemeteries and trenches remind us of the horror of the First World War 1914-1918 . The endless views invite you to walk or take a boat trip on the Yser . You will pass through enchanting villages, experience the openness of the region and admire the protected nature areas . At a 5 minute walk from the Market Place youll find the Pax-tower, the Crypt and the Yser-tower (Ijsertoren) . All together they form the European Peace domain . In this museum of 22 floors you get an idea how life was during the First World War . Smell the chloral and mustard gas, feel the fear of soldiers in the Trenches of Death . At a height of 84 meters you have a magnificent view over Diksmuide and the entire Westhoek region . 25,638 soldiers found their resting-place at the German Military Cemetery of Vladslo-Praetbos . The Mourning Parent is a moving sculpture by Käthe Kollwitz, an important German expressionistic artist . She created it out of sorrow and love for her 18 year old son Peter who was killed in the Great War . Diksmuide is the ideal accommodation place to discover the Battle Fields .
