Always wanted to visit the former battlefields with a guide?
Here is your chance!
We’ll take you to places you never would find on your own. Villages, woods, paths, streams and…..many foxholes! We might even find traces of the war, like shrapnell or shellcases! We will stand on places were the brave men fought against a hardend enemy.
You can choose different tours and different duration. The minimum is three hours, the maximum is… Well, we can talk about the battle of the bulge a couple of days, but most guests take a daytour.
You can choose:
– The battle of Grandmenil: A 3 hour tour, starting at Baraque de Fraiture, ending up in Grandmenil itself. We’ll take you to Trou de Loup and tell you several stories no one ever told you. Well tell you the stories Bob Kauffman (3rd armored division) told us himself during his visits in Grandmenil. This tour is mainly about the German attack on december 24th and 25th of december 1944.
You can extend this tour with three hours: we wil visit Ottré and tell you the very unknown story of a massacre wich happend on january 10th 1945. We’re studying on this matter for years.
– The Joachim Peiper tour.
This tour starts at the infamous crossroads of Baugnez where 84 American soldiers of the 285th Field Artillery Observation Battalion were killed. After a visit tot the museum, we travel the original route, leading to Stavelot, Trois Ponts, and all the other well known places, ending at the hilly terrain of La Gleize.
Buckle up. This is one bumpy ride…..
– The 551st Parachute Infantry Battalion: We’ll take you from Werbomont all the way to Rochelinval and tell you the horrible story of the GOYA (Get Off Your Ass) men. This 6 hour tour will flabergast you. Not only because of the amazing men, but, above all, the horrific circumstances they had to fight in.
– Hellish places: a 6 hour tour throughout the Ardennes. From Grandmenil, to Rahier, La Gleize, Stavelot, Bihain and other places.
