Along the way, you will find a total of 30 information signs providing information in four languages about the war history of this area, like the Battle of the Bulge, Schmuggel, the Siegfried Line and many other topics. The picture that emerges is that for centuries, this region has been a flashpoint of history, and a place where borders have come and gone. And of course, it has also been the site of some of the bloodiest battles in the history of war. The boundary stones, bunkers and memorials all bear witness to this.
But this hike will also introduce you to the fascinating and varied landscape of the Eifel-Ardennes region. Although these border towns do belong to one country or the other, the hiker comes away from the Memorial Loop having seen the close cultural connections and brotherhood that unites these people to this day.
