Zonnebeke is the heart of the famous Ypres Salient from World War I. The Battle of Passchendaele in 1917, where hundreds of thousands of people were killed in only a few months’ time, still is an international symbol of gratuitous war violence. The Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 remembers vividly of the Battle of Passchendaele. The museum, situated in a beautiful castle park, is the ideal base for a tour to the ancient battle fields. With the Legacy cycle route you can, starting at the museum, discover the rich heritage of the municipality of Zonnebeke in a pleasant manner.
