From 1914 to 1918, World War I raged across the Western Front in France and Belgium. Although today the land lies still, the battle scars are evident. Lille is perfectly situated for easily visiting the surrounding historic sites. See below for ways to delve into WWI history from Lille.
 
Highlights
  • Tour the battlefields of Flanders and the Ypres Salient, and discover Great War sites such as the German cemetery in Langemark and John McRae’s Essex Farm.
  • See where soldiers served on the Western Front at Passchendaele, and where they lie in rest at Tyne Cot cemetery.
  • Spend time in Ypres itself and explore sights including St. George’s Chapel and the Menin Gate Memorial.
