Battlefieldtours in historical army
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

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

Aside from letting you experience
the history, Grateful Generation Tours wants to permanently honor the memory of
our liberators, hence the name.
