Itinerary

Expand All

icon Day 1

Local departure by coach, then to Liège for a three night stay.

icon Day 2 Siegfried Line; Kampfgruppe Peiper & La Gleize

Location:

  Siegfried Line; Kampfgruppe Peiper & La Gleize


We begin our tour at the massive Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery where the dead and missing of the Ardennes battlefield are buried; we learn the stories behind the many brothers who died together and are buried here, along with medal winners and those killed in some of the terrible battlefield massacres.

We then move on to an area where the Battle of the Bulge started, seeing the front line positions close to the Siegfried Line at Hollerath. Here we see Dragon’s Teeth anti-tank defences, trenches and foxholes and memorials to both the German and American troops who were here in December 1944. We then follow the story of Kampfgruppe Peiper, seeing their start positions at the Losheim Gap, and looking at the sad story of the Malmedy Massacre.

After lunch we follow Peiper and his tanks into La Gleize where one of his mighty King Tigers still remains and is on display; we also visit the excellent museum here before looking at the defence of Parker’s Crossroads and ending at Grandmènil where we look at a German Panther tank used by 2nd SS Panzer Division.

icon Day 3 Band of Brothers; Bastogne

Location:

  Band of Brothers; Bastogne


We get an insight into the dreadful German losses in the Ardennes at the German cemetery in Recogne before following the ‘Band of Brothers’ in the fighting for the village of Foy. We see where they attacked Foy and go into the area where their foxholes have been preserved in Bois Jacques, also seeing the Easy Company Memorial nearby.

In Bastogne we visit the 101st Airborne Museum before having time for lunch. In the afternoon we see where General Patton’s men and tanks linked up with the Airborne troops surrounded at Bastogne before seeing one of the Sherman turrets that now mark the defence perimeter around the town.

At Mardasson we see the impressive American Memorial and take time to visit the Bastogne Historical Centre, full of equipment, tanks and memorabilia connected with the fighting here.

icon Day 4

Return home.
