Tips

    After the First World War, the castle was rebuilt in Norman style. Since 1982 the domain has been opened as a walking area. In 2004 the "Memorial Museum Passchendaele" was opened here. The visitor goes through the 5 strokes at Ypres. One can walk in a German trench or descend into a 6m deep British dugout with communication and first aid station, headquarters and sleeping quarters.

    Public place
    In the park, 8 memorial gardens have been laid out in the symbolic shape of a poppy. These gardens are completed at the request of the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 by the different nations that took part in the Battle of Passchendaele, with a design that combines modern art, poetry and symbolic vegetation from that country.

    The starting point of the walk has a spacious parking lot. There is also a very nice park to visit at this departure point with the Passendaele Memorial museum. For the kids there is a very nice adventure tour, with some climbing and wooden play equipment.
    There are also very clean public toilets and a restaurant in the domain.

    The historic castle grounds of Zonnebeke are home to the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917, the municipal library 'De Letterschuur', the Koklikoo and the Zonnebeke Tourist Office. This is the ideal starting point for a discovery tour through Zonnebeke. There are also several walking and cycling routes along car-free paths.Less than three kilometers away are the famous Polygon Wood and Tyne Cot Cemetery, the largest Commonwealth cemetery in the world. Besides the counter of the museum, you will find all the necessary information in the visitor's lounge, also for those who just want to walk, cycle or are looking for a place to eat well.You can also completely relax in the castle grounds: read a book on a park bench, stroll hand in hand along the pond or take a moment to reflect on the history of WWI in the 'Poppy gardens', themed gardens dedicated to the various nations that fought in the Battle of Passchendaele. The Pou Maumahara, opened in 2019, commemorates the Maori deployment and victims during WWI. At the edge of the park is the Kerktoren van Zonnebeke, which offers a beautiful view over the entire region. The "Signed Landscape" exhibition tells you more about the ever-changing landscape.
