Since 1928, every day at 8pm buglers of the Ypres fire brigade play the Last Post to express gratitude to the countless thousands of soldiers who have given their lives for Belgium's freedom.

Unveiled in 1927, this memorial honors the 90000 Commonwealth soldiers killed during the Great War and having no known graves. The names of 54395 of these soldiers are inscribed in the Hall of Memory.

Amazing monument signifying the level of sacrifice that British commonwealth soldiers gave in the first world war. The list of names is endless. Get there early for the 8pm ceremony.

Impressive monument to remember the First World War. Each day at 20.00 o’clock sharp they perform the Last Post. It’s the closest thing you can get to the First World War.
