Tour the forts of Liège by bike

The Fortified Position of Liège is a must-see in the history of the First World War. Discover the forts protecting the city during a bike ride.

For those who love cycling and history, this is the perfect ride for you ! First, we pass by Fort Lantin , one of the region’s unmissable sites. Indeed, it is the only fort of the Fortified Position of Liège to have remained in its original state of 1914.

We then continue by the castle of Waroux, classified as an exceptional heritage site of Wallonia. Apart from the exhibitions, groups can visit the castle only on reservation .

Last stop: the National Necropolis of Fort Loncin, a symbol of the Battle of Liège and the heroism of Belgium facing the German attack in 1914. It is preserved in the state which followed its destruction due to the German bombardments. The sight of the wholly overturned fire domes in the middle of staggering craters allows one to imagine the firepower of the Big Bertha guns: a setting and a story that leaves no one untouched. To learn more, a visit to the fort and the museum is possible and allows you to relive the disastrous explosion of the fort.

For those who never get tired of history, we advise you to combine the visit to both forts! For groups, the two trips and lunch at Fort Lantin costs 20€.
