Memorial tourism in Liège province

Occupying a strategic geographical location within Europe, Belgium and more specifically Liège province were coveted in many quarters for several centuries, a situation which led to countless conflicts over their territory. Once they had achieved independence, Belgium and Liège province again became the scene of multiple decisive major battles, especially during the First and Second World War. These many historical realities help to make Liège province a unique and highly attractive destination for memorial tourism, as testified by the numerous forts and fortifications that can still be found there, but also by the province’s many cemeteries, museums, monuments or commemorative sites.
