The town of Bastogne near the Luxembourg border is a city steeped in historical significance, where the infamous Battle of the Bulge occurred during World War II. This is often an important destination for visitors to Belgium who wish to pay their respects to those who perished protecting Belgium and keeping German forces from gaining control of the Ardennes.
A private guided tour of Bastogne will include a visit to the Mardasson Memorial. This extraordinary monument is constructed in the shape of a five pointed star and was built in honor of the 76,890 American soldiers who were killed, wounded or missing in the Battle of the Bulge. Another popular destination which your guide will ensure you don't miss is the Bois de la Paix, The Wood of Peace. In a design that is only visible from the air, 4,000 trees have been planted and laid out in the symbol of human tenderness - a mother and child. This wood was planted at the 50th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge in honor of the American and Belgian combatants and civilians who lost their lives during the winder of 1944-45. This copse of birches, beech trees and oaks is a beautiful monument and nature reserve area to tour in Bastogne.
One must also visit the Porte de Treves, which is part of the city walls constructed by John the Blind in the 14th century. The beautiful Romanesque tower of St. Peter's church is another site we will tour in Bastogne, and see the famous baptismal fonts dating from the Middle Ages. We will also see monuments to Brigadier General McAuliffe and General Patton around the historical and picturesque town of Bastogne.
