This kilometre-long network of revetments, saps and dug-outs was one of the most dangerous Belgian positions on the Western Front, situated just 50 metres from a German bunker. As a result, the trench was subjected to almost constant fire from the Germans. The site has recently been renovated and a new visitor centre was opened. Using maps, photographs, videos and war memorabilia, the exhibition tells the story of life - and death - in the front-line.
Open daily from 1 march, from 10.00 to 17.00. Last admittance at 16.30. From 16 November to 31 March open on Tuesdays and Fridays, from 09.30 to 16.00. Last admittance at 15.30. Closed between 25 December and 3 January.
