" Climb the Bluttberg hill, one of those places steeped in history, with a soul and a sense of peace, and discover its history, which was once something quite different... "
The Sigolsheim necropolis is a military cemetery created by Marshal de Lattre de Tassigny when he proposed to regroup the bodies of the soldiers of the First French Army after the Second World War.
Located on the hill of "Blutberg", which means "mountain of blood", 1589 soldiers are buried on an area of 18,285 m², including 792 graves of North African soldiers and 15 graves of Jewish soldiers.
In the direct vicinity of the Necropolis, at the level of the car park, stands the American monument which faces the Alsace plain. This monument was erected in 1995 in honour of the American soldiers who died in Alsace for freedom.
Access to the site is forbidden from 6pm to 6am.
