Ypres is an ancient town, and is known to have been raided by the Romans in the first century BC.
The city of Ypres, the heart of the Salient, was involved early in the First World War. During World War I, Ypres was the centre of intense and sustained battles between the German and the British Empire forces. The town was all but annihilate by the artillery fire. Ypres was reduced to ruins. After the War, the town was rebuilt, with many of the original pre-war buildings recreated, and today, standing in the town you would hardly believe that most buildings are at most 80 or so years old.
In Flanders Fields Museum.

Joyce. The Belfry Of Ypres    During Ypres Fields Guided Tour you will visit the museum which is situated on the upper floor of the Cloth Hall (Lakenhalle) in the centre of Ieper (Ypres). In Flanders Fields Museum presents a new large, temporary exhibition 'The Last Witness, The War Landscape of the Ypres Salient'. 

 

    The stories are gone, the trenches filled in, and in spite of the scores of monuments and cemeteries, the need to rediscover all of this seems to grow less urgent by the day. In The Last Witness the battlefield landscape of the Ypres Salient tells modern visitors its own tale. The landscape is being resurrected through visual material of the period, as well as objects that were unearthed recently. Personal eyewitness accounts and texts are placed back into the landscape ...
    In the Ypres area there are numerous war cemeteries from the different nations. A large part are British. A lot of them you will know after Ypres Guided Tour with me, tourist guide in Belgium Joyce! One of the largest and most impressive is the Tyne Cot cemetery, which is situated to the south of the village of Passendale.
