Following the growing tensions between France and Germany, the Belgian Government decided to build a defensive belt of forts around the cities of Liège and Namur.

Hollogne Fort was the 12th Battery and, with its neighbours Flémalle and Loncin, part of the 3rd Fortress Artillery Battalion.

During the Battle of Liège (4 to 16 August 1914), the fort offered a good resistance to the invader.

Surrounded by German artillery and dedicated to the destruction and unnecessary sacrifice of his garrison, Hollogne surrendered its weapons in the morning of August 16 and capitulated.

The last fort of the fortified position of Liege had fallen...

On 6 November 2018, it was chosen by the Walloon Government to host the Tribute of Wallonia on the occasion of the Centenary of the Armistice on 11 November 1918.
