{{ event.description }}

Bastogne is in the province of Luxembourg, part of the Wallonia region of Belgium. The town is known for its war heritage and is a popular site for remembrance.

Understand

Curial town in the Battle of the Bulge, the last major German offensive of WWII on the western front. The American forces of the 101 Airborne held this critical crossroad which held up the Germans. The 101 did this against overwhelming odds. Famous phase "Nuts" was the American reply to the Germans when asked to surrender.

Located in the Ardenne forest. Most go for its historical and heroic events which occurred during WWII.

Bastogne today marks the end of the Liberty Road (French: La voie de la Liberté) that marks the path of liberating Allied forces. The road starts in Normandy.
