A self-guided audio tour takes you into the rich (albeit somewhat eerie) history of Fort Breendonk. We were amazed at all that it had to offer and the incredible things that took place here. I highly recommend this to anyone regardless of your historical knowledge...More
Very well preserved concentration camp. The audio guide explains stories of the former prisoners and that allows you to understand the horrors experienced and to know the atrocities that were commited in this place.

It was thanks to all the TripAdvisor reviews that we went to this little-publicised museum, and it is as moving, as worthwhile and as clearly presented as all previous reviews suggest. A visit we will never forget.
The 460 bus from Brussels costs 6 euros...More
