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

Day 2 - Siegfried Line – Kampfgruppe Peiper & La Gleize

We start our tour at the massive Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery. 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 and look at the sad story of the Malmedy Massacre. We follow Peiper and his tanks into La Gleize where one of his mighty King Tigers still remains.

Day 3 - 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’. 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 new 101st Airborne Museum. In the
afternoon we see where General Patton’s men and tanks linked up with the Airborne troops. At Mardasson we see the impressive American Memorial and Bastogne Historical Centre.
