Tyne Cot Hiking Trail – The Legacy of Passchendaele (8,5 km)

TCCStart and parking: Dienst voor Toerisme, Berten Pilstraat 5A, 8980 Zonnebeke

The 'The Legacy of Passchendaele' hiking trail map is your guide to discovering our beautiful municipality. The northern hiking trail connects the Zonnebeke Chateau premises with the historic battlefields around Passchendaele. In 1917, that village was taken by the troops of the British Empire at the expense of tens of thousands of lives. The Australian and New Zealand story is told extensively on various information panels along the trail. In addition to the many relics, still present, the trail leads you to Tyne Cot Cemetery, which is the largest Commonwealth cemetery in the world.

A map of the hiking trail can be found on the information panel at the starting point. The route is signposted with hexagonal signs and along the trail the information is displayed on multilingual information panels.
The hiking trail map about the 3 Legacy or Passchendaele trails (Tyne Cot, Polygon Wood and Geluveld) can be purchased at the Tourist Office or via https://webshopzonnebeke.recreatex.be/ at a price of € 1.50/map.
