Discover-B : WW1 - The Flanders Fields

The First World War transformed the Flanders into the most dramatic war landscape in Belgium. The region was marked and marred by four years of bitter conflict. The inhabitants of 1914 saw how their homes and their fields were turned into battlefields on which European and wider international interest were fought out. Like so many millions of others, they were forced to pay the price for the failure of the princes and the politicians to settle their differences in peace.

The Flanders now contains hundreds of monuments and cemeteries which have great historical significance for the people of many nations. The story of war and peace belongs not only to the past, but also to the present and the future.

Claude and Dominique are aware of the importance of this heritage and hope to make their own small contribution to the History of WW1 by guiding you along sites of importance.

Here is a possible program:

One day / half day tour: Start from Brussels or Bruges, by car (max 3 pers.) or small bus (max 8 pers.)
