Saint Mihiel American Cemetery by Michel (Travel Pics)

On the Western Front, during World War One, much of the war was spent in trenches; long, narrow ditches dug into the earth where soldiers lived together day and night.

Held by infantry, the trenches defined the front lines and death was never far away.

This reconstructed section of original German trench system, including four bunkers and two mine shafts, is located about 2km north of Wijtschate.

Access to the Bayernwald German Trenches is by prior booking from the Heuvelland Tourist Office in Kemmel.
