I visited the fort with a group of friends; we had what amounted to a private tour with our guide Fenton and his able assistant, Kevin. The history of the fort is unique; arguably it played a critical role in keeping a huge number of...More

If you are interested in world war two, this fortress is definitely not to be missed! Aubin Neufchateau might not have the fame of Eben-Emael but that doesn't mean this fortress is not worth a visit. Every third weekend of the month the fortress is...More

A lovely little fort, a 300 meter triangle that has some 3000m of underground tunnels. The best thing about this place is that it's original, it has basically just been left as it was after the war. The guns have been removed and parts of...More

I was lucky enough to be part of a guided tour of this battle-scarred atmospheric fort in June 2015. We had a fluent English-speaking guide who had been partly raised in Britain who brought this historic battered place to life with good humour and many...More
