Bastonge Historical Walk
On Saturday 14 December, the City of Bastogne will hold its 36th annual historical walk. Participants can choose between 7, 13 or 22 kilometer walks that follow the defensive perimeter of Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge. Along the way, participants will learn about certain key moments during the siege of the city and encounter re-enactors who will illustrate and explain what the American defenders of Bastogne experienced. Following the walk, a patriotic parade will proceed through the center of Bastogne, and dignitaries will lay wreaths at the McAuliffe and Patton monuments.
To participate, register at the Sports Center of Bastogne (Centre sportif de Bastogne) between 8.00 and 9.30 am on Saturday 14 December. All of the walks begin from there. There is a €6 registration free, which includes a map of the walk, a historical booklet, a hot beverage along the route, and when you are through, a certificate of participation and a souvenir patch.
