The German Charnel House near Tolmin is situated on the left bank of the Soca River. It is in the immediate neighbourhood of the city Tolmin, about one kilometer past the school and across the parking lot of the former casino. The ossuary means building or place for preserving bones from the dig up graves. The German Charnel House was built by the company from Munich in the year 1938. There was buried 965 German soldiers. At the entrance to the foyer are forged doors, which are designed from gun barrels. The interior of the chapel is divided into two parts. In the first section the names of the fallen are inscribed on oak panels. In the second section, separated by a wrought iron screen, the names of the fallen are inscribed using mosaics in three lunettes. At the centre of this space is the grave of the Unknown Soldier where the sun strikes during the summer solstice.
