Good news! The Fort Eben-Emael is open again

Het Fort Eben-Emael - an immense underground complex and in its time one of the largest and strongest fortifications in Europe - was considered impregnable. Until May 10, 1940, when a German elite unit of paratroopers seized the fortress during a spectacular attack.

The fort is reopened : you can now discover - in safe conditions, of course - the reconstructed barracks, the museum, the immense corridors and the battle stations.
