Jülich is a small city situated between Aachen and Cologne. Samia works for the researchcenter in the city, where also a lot of our international friends live. Sometimes we like to go and relax a bit in Jülich, there it has some great leisure spots for a warm sunday! Let me take you on a sightseeing tour through Jülich! These are the three places to visit.
Are you visiting the South of the Netherlands and doing a little tour? Just 30 kilometers from Eindhoven towards Maastricht you will pass the village Nederweert. There is not much to see in the village except one beautiful memorial: the Nederweert War Cemetery.
The cemetery is dedicated to the casualties after the liberation of Nederweert on 21st September 1944. Nederweert was liberated by British troops, who still had ongoing fights with German patrols in the area.
There is a total of 362 graves on the burial site (Not as huge as the memorial site at Margraten, read more about that HERE).All the fallen soldiers are from Commonwealth countries. On the cemetery, there is Cross of Sacrifice with a bronze sword in it. In the back, there is a small chapel. See the gallery below for a view of the memorial.
It is worth a short visit while you are in the area. You can park the car next to the park the burial site is situated. It is 50 meters walk towards the entrance, also accessible by wheelchair. A great pitstop in the beautiful province of Limburg!
