BATTLE OF THE BULGE TOUR 2019

BATTLE OF THE BULGE TOUR

2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge.

DEPARTURE: 12TH OCTOBER 2019 – 6 DAY TOUR
2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the commencement of the Battle of the Bulge. This battle, ordered by Hitler, was Germany’s last big attempt to force the Allies back towards and across the channel by a sneaky tank attack in the densely wooded hills of the Ardennes.

ITINERARY:

SATURDAY 12TH OCTOBER
Pick up by luxury coach from your designated departure point and drive to Dublin for the ferry crossing to Holyhead. Drive across North Wales and the Pennines to Hull for the overnight cruise ferry to Zeebrugge with en-suite cabins. Enjoy dinner and entertainment on board as we cruise to Belgium.

SUNDAY 13TH OCTOBER – Brussels
After breakfast on the ship, drive to the Belgian capital, Brussels for an overview of this cosmopolitan city with some free time to see the sights of the city centre. Continue our journey to the beautiful town of La Roche-en-Ardenne and check in to our hotel with time to relax before dinner. Evening at leisure.

MONDAY 14TH OCTOBER – Bastogne Battlefields
This morning we have a guided tour of Bastogne Battlefields and the Bastongne War Museum which follows the stories of four people and their experiences of the Battle of the Bulge. Retrace this major conflict from their different perspectives. Dinner in the hotel.

TUESDAY 15TH OCTOBER – Airborne Museum and Brewery
Today we visit the 101st Airborne Museum, dedicated to the American paratroopers who fought this battle, taking us back to the cold winter of 1944-45. We see how soldiers and locals lived during WW2 and step inside a shelter to experience simulated bombings. Before returning to the hotel for dinner, we will visit Brasserie d’Ashouffe, a brewery that specialises in brewing quality special beers, set at the heart of the verdant Belgian Ardennes, for a guided tour and beer tasting.

WEDNESDAY 16TH OCTOBER – Ardennes & Bruges
Check out of hotel and make our way to Zeebrugge. En route spend some free time in beautiful Bruges, the ‘Venice of the North’. Experience wonderful medieval architecture, canals and an opportunity to purchase some of the lace or chocolate for which Bruges is famous, before boarding the overnight cruise ferry to Hull with en-suite cabins, dinner and breakfast on board.

THURSDAY 17TH OCTOBER
Disembark in Hull and return via Holyhead to Dublin with immediate transfers to original pick up point.
