  • If you are interested in world war two, this fortress is definitely not to be missed! Aubin Neufchateau might not have the fame of Eben-Emael but that doesn't mean this fortress is not worth a visit. ...  more »

  • 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 by April 1935 and being finished on May 10, 1940, he had to slow the progression of the German invader. During the 11 days of combat, the garrison of about 560 men will resist with heroism and self-sacrifice in the face of the German troops. Between 500 and 2000 Germans will fall during the 23 assaults carried out against the strong. Belgian coast, 7 losses will be regrettable. On May 21, 1940, following the exhaustion of its ammunition, the Fort was forced to surrender; It will then leave for 5 years of captivity in the Stalags. As of 1942, the Germans will remain a new secret weapon in galleries and underground corridors, more than 30 meters deep. Open to the public every Sunday from April to November 3rd, 2: 00 to block B3 (entry). Thomas Hérens, curator of the Museum of the Fort
