Remembrance Tour from Brussels: The poppies of Flanders Fields
We first take you to Bruges. Your guide will explain the stories and secrets behind the city’s history from the Viking period until the end of the Middle Ages. You see literally ‘all’ highlights of Bruges. You even have the option to enjoy a pleasant boat trip along the narrow canals.
After a short lunchbreak we leave for Flanders Fields which was one of the major battlegrounds in the First World War. Our expert guide will help you throughout the visit to understand the events that led to the first world war and how the catastrophe developed. We take you to Passchendaele battlefield and the Tyne Cot Cemetery, the largest Commonwealth cemetery in the world where British, Australian and Canadian soldiers lie at rest. You visit the Monument of the ‘Brooding Soldier’ and Essex Farm.
At 8 pm you attend the Last Post Ceremony at Menin Gate, a daily tribute to all Commonwealth soldiers and officers that were missing after battle. Itinerary
