From town center

Once you have made it to the town Luxeuil-les-Bains, here are the last few steps to the final resting place of Kiffin Yates Rockwell. Let's assume that you are starting from the Tourist Information:

  1. Stand in front of the entrance to the Office de Tourisme facing the street on the corner of Avenue des Thermes and Rue Carnot.
  2. Turn to the left and cross the Rue Carnot. Immediately a couple meters to the right, you will see a small alleyway between the houses called Rue Sainte Anne. Follow this street up the hill winding slightly to the left.
  3. After about 100 meters you will see a parking lot and on the other side the high stone walls of the cemetery.
  4. Turn to the right and follow the walls and you will eventually reach the entrance way at the end, two very large black iron gates. A sign to the left will say Common Wealth War Cemetery. Please enter.
  5. On the very first row of gravesides, turn left and walk up the gravel path. On your right will be the start of the white war veteran tombstones. About halfway you will see the famous bronze plaque and at last you will have found Kiffin Yates Rockwell's final resting place.

Detailed map

The detailed map of Luxeuil-les-Bains below should hopefully provide you with enough detail. The red star in the Cimetiere marks the spot where Kiffin is buried. I recommend that you stay at the Hotel Beau Site, the nicest (three star) hotel in the area. Also check out the Cloister on the Place de l'Abbaye where some relic is preserved (I think it is a piece of the cross, if I remember correctly).
