Close to Bergheim is a German war cemetery. This cemetery is like the French one at Sigolsheim in that it is on top of a small mountain (337 m). We had a great view there.
We asked ourselves how the veterans and the relatives who arenít walking that easily have to get there from the parking lot.
Most of the soldiers who are buried here are victims of the Colmar Pocket. At first they were buried on 225 different places in the department. The graves on this cemetery look to their homeland.
