  • On my tours I've experienced many guided tours in all possible grades. The visit to Fort Battice belongs with security to my best, not even to the best leadership. Offered are Dutch and English, guided tours in French. We had 3 visitors in the English group and our guide Philippe Brasseur gave us such a wealth of interesting information about the Fort, that it was on the border of the absorption capacity in some more than 4 1/2 hours. All without time pressure, on issues discussed in detail, nothing has been stalled or abbreviated. This was pure no locks through by visitors, but of knowledge! A visit is really to recommend! For visitors with limited mobility: Within the fortress, some stairs with more than 100 stair steps are to deal with.

  • The organized tours are really exciting and allow the little ones and their elders to discover or rediscover a little more about the war and the living conditions of our unfortunate ancestors soldiers...  more »
  • 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 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!+
  • Large Fort from the 2.Weltkrieg. Guided tours take place on the last Saturday in the month and take about 3-4 hours. Very informative and the facility is very impressive and has some highlights. Hardly to imagine what the soldiers were there have endured, it is glad to get the couple of hours back into the open.
