BATTLE OF THE BULGE
Our museum presents the events of the famous Battle of the Bulge (1944-1945) through a series of realistic dioramas. Visitors are invited to discover the tragic destinies of soldiers and civilians caught in the middle of combat. The key focus of the museum remains the balanced and objective historical representation of the military operations in the Ardennes from the American, German and civilian point of view.
Over 3.000 square meters of exhibition space and numerous life-size impressive dioramas enable an insight of the dramatic and tragic situations that both soldiers and civilians were caught in. Special showrooms feature extensive collections of weapons, uniforms, military equipment of all kind, wheeled- and tracked vehicles, in addition to numerous personal belongings, photographs, documents, and maps. The museum’s core piece is doubtlessly the detailed mock-up of the night-time Sauer river crossing at Diekirch on January 18, 1945 by units of the 5th U.S. Infantry division.
