Overview of your Bruges tour:

This area is full of reminders of the horrors of both World Wars. On this tour, I'll take you to two of the best preserved and impressive remaining constructions of both World Wars. Most of World War I was spent and fought in trenches. A visit to the best conserved trenches of Belgium including bunkers and even a double-decker trench (the so-called Trench of Death), is a must if you want to understand and learn about the Great War. One of the most striking Nazi constructions was undoubtedly the Atlantic Wall, meant to defend occupied Europe from an Allied landing, from the French-Spanish border to the north of Norway. The Belgian coast was part of this immense defensive construction. One of the best preserved parts of the Atlantic Wall is the coastal battery near Ostend, including observation and communication bunkers, command bunker, artillery emplacements, personnel bunkers, anti-aircraft emplacements, etc. Join me in order to get great insights of how it must've been to live and serve here during WWII

Your Bruges tour itinerary

-I will pick you up at or near your hotel in Bruges. -Depending on starting time and opening hours, we'll do the Trench of Death or the Atlantic Wall first. -We will spend about two hours on The Atlantic Wall site and about one hour on the Trench of Death site. -I'll give you the necessary background of the site and what we'll see as well as its place in the larger picture of the war. This can be less or more detailed, depending on your interest. Questions are more than welcome! -Besides these two war sites, we'll also stop by the charming town of Diksmuide, a medieval town that was completely rebuilt after WWI. This wouldn't be Belgium, if we didn't stop for a refreshment or try one of the many local delicacies. The tour takes about 5 hours but you can make it a full-day road trip and add more stops. Please check with me for customized options.
