At a 5 minutes walk from the Market Place you’ll find the Pax-tower, the Crypt and the IJzertower. All together they form the European Peace domain. In this museum (22 floors) you get an idea how life was during the First World War. Smell the chloral-and mustard gas, feel the fear of soldiers in the Trenches of Death. At a height of 84 meters you have a magnificent view over Diksmuide and the entire Westhoek region.
