Short stop: Nederweert War Cemetery

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.

View of the entrance

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!

There is a lot of empty stores in the city center which is not appealing at all (still, in the neighboring cities and villages you will find enough nature). To make the city look a bit more colorful graffiti has been used to cheer up the streets. Can you spot them all in your visit?
