WW1 walking route
The northern walking loop connects the castle grounds of Zonnebeke with the historic battlefields on the outskirts of Passchendaele. That village was taken by the British at the cost of ten thousand lives in 1917. Along the route, two nations that fought at the Battle of Passchendaele stand out strongly. The story of the Australians and New Zealanders is covered in detail on information panels along the route. The CWGC Tyne Cot Cemetery visitor centre offers a panoramic view of the former battlefields. Download the walking map & wheelchair accessible walking map here.
