Kleve Cemetery

by mintocres Online Now Apr 18, 2009 at 5:46 PM

Hi, we (4 healthy seniors) shall be coming to Germany, basically to see a relative's grave at the Reichswald Forest War Cemetery near Kleve. We hope to spend 2 days in the surrounding area ( possibly landing at Frankfurt or Dusseldorf or even Amsterdam airport_ and then an overnight in a town near the cemetery. We will be relying on train and bus transportation. We hope to see some of the Rhine and go for a day cruise.
Could you please offer us some suggestion? After visiting the cemetery we will be traveling up to Copenhagen- perhaps by airplane??

    will give you train times, details and fares for Germany in English.

    It would be easier and much cheaper (and probably much quicker, allowing for transport to/from the airport, check-in and baggage reclaim) to take the train back to Amsterdam.

    From Kleve the fastest train journey is around 4 hours. The fastest trains only involve one change (very easy: the German rail system is very efficient). One-way fare is 61.60 euro. Other trains involve more changes, but are cheaper.

    Train travel in Germany is safe and comfortable.

    The cemetery is south of Kleve, between Goch and Kalkar.

    In the bus info of the region I see that bus # 50 stops at Reichswald cemetery, and passes at Kleve's railway station (Bahnhof).

    So you probably have to get on a bus from Kleve to Goch first, and then change to the other one to Reichswald.

    Info here:

    In the timetable your stop at Kleve Bahnhof is abbreviated as Kleve Bf.

    The trip takes about half an hour.

    Kleve might be the best place for overnighting. But the bus also stops in Goch.

    For more info you could contact Kleve's town hall info:

    If you click on the names in the top right hand corner, you get email contacts.
