YPRES - FLANDERS FIELDS
Full day tour (6 -8h). This tour starts/ends at your hotel in Brussels or in Bruges (contact us for rates).
Walking around this pretty city, it is hard to imagine the incredible highs and lows it has endured. Extreme wealth in the Middle Ages and then 100 years ago, reduced to rubble during World War I. It is a fitting reminder of people's resilience and their ability to bounce back from adversity.
The Ypres Salient battlefields are among the most visited on the entire Old Front Line of Flanders.
Every evening at 8pm since 1928 you can hear the Last Post under the imposing memorial arches of the Menin Gate. The Last Post is the traditional salute to the fallen and is played in honour of the memory of the soldiers of the British Empire, who fought and died in Ypres.
A typical tour to Ypres includes (entrance fee*)
A visit to the Flanders Fields Museum *
A visit to the Tyne Cot Cemetary in Passendaele
A visit of the trenches at Sancturary Wood (Hill 62) Museum*
