  • For lovers of fortresses of the 2nd World War, the fort of Battice is one of the monuments to visit! With his barracks to the superb frescoes (and time!), the damage caused by a certain German munition and... the rest.

  • A 1930s fort designed with the aim of defending Belgium from Germany. A small team of volunteers work to keep the fort open to the public (limited opening hours, please check internet before you go !)  more »
  • Guided tour made this 10/29/16. This fort worth be traveled far and wide. 'Nice volunteer organizers' do not spare their time and efforts to make you discover a maximum of the subterranean life of the BRAVES. The words are insufficient to express everything there is! A big thank you to the dedicated members of the Fort.

  • A monument to those patriotic Belgian troops who fought to prevent invasion in May 1940. The forts of the PFL (Position Fortifee de Liege) were manned by men of the Regt. de Forteresse de Liege, and at the time of the German invasion were under the command of Colonel Maurice Modard. Divided into five groups, the fifth of which occupied Battice. On the infamous morning of 10 May 1940, the various forts around Liege were put on high alert. The CO of Battice fort, Major Henry Bovy, was in hospital at 4.30am but left there immediately and returned to his command. One hour later, having ordered the guns to fire their first salvoes, Bovy suffered a heart attack, collapsed and died. His place was taken by his 2-i-C, Commandant Georges Guery. Kudos and gratitude to the Belgian Government for it's upkeep of Battice as a place of Remembrance of the brave men who died in the defence of their homes, families and their country. Unlike the fort at Boncelles where IT'S defenders are forgotten, ignored and insulted. +NEVER FORGET!+
  • Nice to see what a people used to could build. Well-trained guides really grounded in the history of the fort
