Battlefieldtours in historical army vehicles


The National Liberation Museum in collaboration with Grateful Generation Tours and Liberation Tour has organized various battlefield tours in historical army vehicles to bring the historical landscape around Groesbeek closer to the public. The walls of the museum are broken down around Operation Market Garden and the Rhineland Offensive. The museological setting is entangled with the old battlefields of the largest airborne landings in history and the largest allied attack in north-west Europe during WW2.

 

Grateful Generation Tours

Grateful Generation Tours is a group of young individuals who organize exciting fieldtrips along the battlefields of Operation Market Garden in an old Willys Jeep (max. 3 persons). The tours will take about 30 minutes and are suitable for young and old alike but are an absolute must for youths. Aside from letting you experience the history, Grateful Generation Tours wants to permanently honor the memory of our liberators, hence the name.

Price: €7,50 per person, cash only.
Time: tours every half hour from 1-5 pm.
Reservations can be made on site during the day.

Dates in 2017: April 23, May 5, May 7, July 9, September 10, September 17 and October 8.
