  • There are more war forts that you can visit, but this is a special, because of the history, the location, the well-preserved State, the unlikely views. Read what happened here in the battle of 1940. And try to imagine. Also an excellent starting point for shorter and longer walks in the beautiful hilly and colorful region. I park my car here often for a 5, 10 or 15 km round.

  • Built in April 1935 and finishing on May 10, 1940, he had to slow the progression of the German invaders. During the 11 days of combat, the garrison of about 560 men will resist with heroism and selflessness against German troops. Between 500 and 2000 Germans will fall during the 23 assaults carried out against the Fort. Belgian coast, 7 losses will be regrettable. On May 21, 1940, following the exhaustion of its ammunition, the Fort had to go; This will then be the departure for 5 years in captivity in the Stalags. As early as 1942, the Germans will remain a new secret weapon in the galleries and underground corridors, more than 30 meters deep. Visitable every 3rd Sunday of April to November, meeting at 2 p.m. at the block B3 (input). Thomas Hérens, curator of the Museum of the Fort
