Chateau Grounds

ParkThe historic chateau grounds of Zonnebeke accommodate the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 and the Zonnebeke Tourist Office. This is the ideal departure point for an exploratory route along the battlefields of 1917.

The well-known Tyne Cot Cemetery, the largest Commonwealth cemetery in the world and also Polygon Wood are located less than three kilometres away. You can find all the necessary information in the visitors’ room next to the museum reception; also for those who
just want to take a walk, cycle ride or find a place to eat. 

You can completely relax in the chateau grounds, read a book on a bench in the park, stroll hand-in-hand by the lake or take a moment to stop and think about the history of WWI in the ‘Poppy gardens’, themed gardens
dedicated to the various nations that fought in the Battle of Passchendaele.
