The Grandmenil area became the terrain of extremely hard fighting during Christmas 1944
Your tourguide Bob Konings has been researching this battle since 2008 and so it has resulted in the website grandmenil.com. During this tour you will learn all about the German advance till the point where they were stopped by a “lucky” bazooka shot.
This absolute UNIQUE tour takes you to the highest point in this region, Baraque de Fraiture. From there we wil descent back towards Grandmenil and into the woods, following the traces of the 2nd SS “Das Reich” Division Bob knows the stories in detail and he can step back in time, showing you many pictures. You will visit artillery positions, foxholes. vital crossroads, bridges, etc. He wil tell you the story of Malempré, Manhay and, of course, Grandmenil.
Bob is a flexible tourguide so tell him what you want to see, and he will take you there. It is also possible that he will come up with something completely new, wich recently came up during the researches.

“Bob told us he found some foxholes, he wanted to show us. Before I knew it, we were driving deeper and deeper into the woods, almost wrecking his car, and ended up on top of a hill, overlooking at least one hundred foxholes, beloning to the 75th Infantry Division.” – Patrick-
