WWI Walk

In 1916, the 'Mechelse Heide’ became the practice ground of a German 'Minewerferschule'. During this walk, we visit, accompanied by a Ranger, the remains in the heathland, such as trenches, bunkers and mortar impacts. The Ranger will tell you more about the reasons for this training camp and its impact on the lives of the local population.
