  • The fortress of Eben-Emael became very popular during the fight on May 10, 1940 when a small team of German paratroopers the artillery of the fort in less than 15 minutes under control. Organization, innovation and daring were the keys for the German success. Visit fort Eben-Emael and discover the incredible adventure of the first moments of World War II. We will inform you about the secret German plans, innovative and powerful weapons. Today this huge complex back to life. You will discover the kitchen, the dormitories, the first aid center, showers and so much more ... as it was originally. More than 75 mannequins and special sound effects reconstitute the daily life in this stunning city.

  • Last year, we visited the Fort with several people. I was skeptical, because war history etc don't really care. From the outside very inconspicuous, but what is behind the entrance is the absolute madness hidden. We booked a tour and got a great leader. After a short time, I was very interested in the whole thing. Miles and miles of tunnel network, many bunkers and rooms, original rubble places after bombs strike, you can look at everything and work on let. Speaker transmitted noise from back then, so that you get a soft idea, as it must have been in the war. It is really great and therefore also for people to recommend which are otherwise not interested in something like that. Since it is pretty cool in the tunnel, you should have good shoes and a jacket. Extraterrestrial, after the underground part you can visit various fixtures and locations on the Geläde for a nice walk.

  • Huge complex, fully down. Worth it to learn more about the beginning of the 2nd World War. Visit it if you can. Also the walk on the domain is the trouble

  • Fascinating place. I felt like an ant wandering around the tunnels with interesting exhibits and knowledgeable tour guides
  • Beautiful historical place with magical flower fields. The bunker complex is very impressive.
  • 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
  • Beautiful place.
  • sadly only a few general opening hours...or you have to call them to arrange a date for visit... but what i've seen from outside they have done a good job to inform about history!
