The cemetery contains 85 fallen soldiers of World War I and nearly 32,000 fallen soldiers of World War II on a total of 17 acres. A cross was placed for each fallen soldier. The details (name, grave location, date of birth and death, rank - if known) are marked with white color on the natural stone. There are also unknown military men buried there. On these graves there is a cross with the text "Ein Deutscher Soldat". Besides the graves of German soldiers, you can also discover other special stories by taking a guided tour. 

Next to the cemetery is a Listening Place of Liberation Route Europe, where the story about the cemetery is told. Look here for more information about the Listening Place.
