Immerse yourself in the World War I history of Flanders through this full-day tour of the battlefields and other landmarks from Brussels. The provided round-trip transportation eliminates the need to rent a car and ensures that you can focus on the scenery on the ride through the countryside. History buffs will enjoy in-depth commentary from their guide on visits to the Flanders' Field Museum and while watching a Las Post ceremony in Ypres.

What to expect?

In the morning, transfer from Brussels to Ypres, a Flemish city where the German and allied armies fought between 1914 and 1918. On this trip, you will visit some of the remarkable places and battlefields from the Great War.
Take a tour by your private car and on foot of Ypres and its surroundings. Some of the biggest military cemeteries of European history are situated here. See the Tyne Cot Cemetery in Zonnebeke, where more than 12,000 soldiers from the Commonwealth are buried and commemorated, and the German cemetery in Vladslo, mostly known because of its remarkable symbolic statue "The Mourning Couple," from Käthe Kollwitz. Here, more than 25,000 soldiers were laid to rest. Afterward, drive to Diksmuide where you will stop for a 3-course lunch.
Ater lunch, transfer to Ypres and visit of the historical center of Ypres, seeing Cloth Hall, the Belfry, Market Square, and St. Martin's Cathedral. Reconvene with your guide at a pre-arranged time to witness to soul-stirring Last Post Ceremony at Ypres’ Menin Gate. Absorb the saddening simplicity of the service then return to your vehicle for the drive back to Brussels.
