  • German soldiers who died during WWII are commemorated in this cemetery which is beautifully kept and well worth a visit. The views out to sea are stunning.

  • Attended the 77th Anniversary of the German invasion of Crete in May 2018 and the sombre service at the cemetery overlooking the airfield at Maleme. My father was a runner for the 22 NZ Battalion during the battle which claimed so many young lives for no apparent reason and inflicted much suffering for the brave Cretans. Visit this beautiful , peaceful place and reflect on the futility of war.
  • Takes your breath away. So many, so young, so sad.
