Guided tour - full day

Bastogne, which is world wide known as the town that suffered most during the battle of the Bulge, was at 90% destroyed in the days before Christmas 1944. Finally, General Patton and his troups delivered the 101st Airborne from the Germans.

Meeting with your guide in Brussels (station or hotel) and transfert by bus to Bastogne.
We have a two-hour drive through the Ardennes (including short stop).

We visit the famous “Mardasson” on the battlefield, a monument erected by the Belgians to thank the American troops. We have a photo stop in the town centre of Bastogne and we continue to Luxemburg.

More than thousand years ago the Abbot of Trier built St. Michael’s church on the crossing of two Roman roads, overlooking the Alzette valley.

For many centuries the “Gibraltar of the North” developed into the best guarded town in Europe.

After the French - Prussian war of 1870 it became totally independent. It is the heart of the EU institutions.

Tourism, mining and the wine culture made it one of the most prosperous regions of Europe.

After lunch, in Luxemburg, time off for shopping. Before driving back to Brussels (station or hotel) we stop at the American military cemetery.
