At the war cemetery in Neheim are some fields with war graves from the First and Second World War. There are also a large number of single war graves, they are scattered throughout the cemetery. The war cemetery is part of a public cemetery.

One of the hardest hit places near the Möhnesee is Neheim, today a part of Arnsberg. The cemetery contains many graves of victims who perished when Neheim was struck by a 12 meter high tsunami. An information board which is placed on the central path of the cemetery commemorates the breach of the Möhnedam and thereby killed victims.
