WW II, World War II from the Ardennes to Aachen, the Eifel to the "Bridge at Remagen"

 

We offer a unique day tour from Cologne, Bonn or Dusseldorf in a Mercedes-Benz R-, S- or V- Class with a driver and guide:

We will visit important but little known locations of prominent strategic and historical significance. We have conducted extensive research into these places, which we are aware of because of our familiarity with the traditions and local people in the surrournding area. 

We will visit many, small private museums and a number of hidden memorials. 

Our focus is on the former area of operations of the 1st, 30th and 99th Infantry Divisions, in addition to their war graves.

The route includes the Aachen Cathedral, the Ardennes, the Eifel and the "Bridge at Remagen". 

 

 

 

History - Reactivation in 1944:

With the D-Day landings in Normandy on 6 June 1944, war in the west broke out once more. On 24 August 1944, Hitler gave a directive for renewed construction on the Siegfried Line. 20,000 forced labourers and members of the Reichsarbeitsdienst (Reich Labour Service), most of whom were 14–16-year-old boys, attempted to re-equip the line for defence purposes. Local people were also called in to carry out this kind of work, mostly building anti-tank ditches.

During construction, it was already clear that the bunkers could not withstand the newly developed armour-piercing weapons. At the same time as the Siegfried Line was reactivated, small concrete "Tobruk" bunkers were built along the border to the occupied area. These bunkers were mostly dugouts for single soldiers.
