The walk towards Tyne Cot follows the ‘Road to Passchendaele’ that Australian troops followed in 1917 to take Passchendaele. Along the walk are several information carriers telling you the history of Zonnebeke. Both WWI and non-WWWI. The wheelchair-accessible Tyne Cot Cemetery walking loop is 5.8 km long.

Accessible paths and sanitary facilities
The walking loop starts and ends at the Castle Building is on accessible paths. The type of surface is indicated on the plan and is mainly paved. The semi-paved sections are of such quality with fine crushed stone to make it doable for wheelchair users.
We recommend a companion. Although there are no obstacles and few thresholds larger than 2 cm along the route, there are certain sections that have a gradient greater than 5%.
