Chatillon Car Graveyard – One of the Biggest Car Cemeteries in the World

The Chatillon Car Graveyard in Belgium is one of the biggest car cemeteries in the world. The story of this cemetery begins with an urban legend according to which US soldiers from World War II left these cars behind because they could not ship them back to the US. The forest seemed, at that time, a great place to hide them until they could come back and retrieve them.

This legend is dismantled by the locals who claim that it’s simply an old car dump of vehicles made after the WWII.

At some point there were 4 car graveyards in Chatillon with 500 retro cars, but most of them were stolen or removed by the locals and because of the environmental issues the graveyards were cleared in 2010.
