We visited Fort Loncin last Thursday having pre arranged for our group visit by email. We were met at 10am and had what I can only call an excellent guided tour from our guide. The Fort tells a very emotive story of the early days...More

This fort and museum are ABSOLUTELY worth a visit. The museum explains the battle of Liege, the first major battle of WW1, superbly, and on a light up map it shows the different forts around the city, the defenses and the order of events. The...More

Walking around this place gives you the feeling that something big happened here. I would definitely recommend the guided tour (not available all year long if I remember well).

Looked forward to visiting, but found the museum only opened for limited hours only one day a week! Very disappointing. Could view some of the fort over a surrounding fence, which only excited our curiousity.
