  • A small museum and an extensive reconstructed trench along the river Iser. It's very interesting to see how these trenches were laid out and the history associated with this site.

  • Brief, but impactful place to visit to understand Belgian and WW1 history. Despite the beautiful flowers and grass that have grown around the trenches, this remains a solemn, heavy place. An important reminder for Peace.
  • Very informative and well preserved place. Walking through the trenches gives you as accurate of an idea as to how the soldiers fought.
