Fort Eben-Emael Reviews
Hebben het geluk gehad om met een Nederlandstalige gids het fort te bezoeken. De gids (een vrijwilliger) vertelde met veel passie, en met zo nu en dan een kwinkslag, over dit stukje (ongekende) vaderl... more »Have been lucky enough to visit with an English Guide to the fort. The Guide (a volunteer) told with a lot of passion, and with every now and then, a quip about this piece of Dutch history (unprecedented). It was fascinating and interesting. We have a thick 2 hours walked around and then we had only 14% of the entire fort seen. Incredibly great is it there!! Dikkepluim to all the volunteers who keep the fort in honour with the few resources they have/get!! TIP: take outside, to the left of the entrance to the fort, once the ladder to the top. It is a nice walk, by nature, where you finally ended up on the roof of the fort = nice view!

Well worth a second visit! Do ask for the big tour and be sure to check the website or call before a visit. It is not alsways open for visitors and in the smaller tour you miss out on alot of stuff. Magnificent fort, magnificent story! Beautiful building and creation! Only 8 euro for entrance and guided tour! Has a bar inside.
This was once thought to be a near impenetrable fort but in 1940 the German Falshrimjager used gliders and invaded the fort and took it in about 1 hour
Splendid WW I fortress in a great natural setting ideal for hiking
Fascinating place. I felt like an ant wandering around the tunnels with interesting exhibits and knowledgeable tour guides
Impressive site. when the fort is not open you can still follow a foot path around the outside of the fortifications. Take a photo of the map at the entrance to get an overview during your walk
