Bastogne, Belgium — 2 nights

Most travelers come to Bastogne for its touching war memorial and museum, built in honor of over 76,000 American soldiers who fought during the legendary Battle of the Bulge--one of the last German offensives in World War II. Over seven decades later, the town's daily life remains deeply linked to this dramatic episode in wartime history. Bastogne makes a good day trip from almost anywhere in the Ardennes region and provides an easy bus link to Liege, a popular travel destination located less than 70 km (45 mi) north.
Start off your visit on the 1st (Tue): get to know the fascinating history of Mardasson Memorial, then brush up on your military savvy at Bastogne War Museum, and then walk around Le Bois de la Paix. On the 2nd (Wed), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: brush up on your military savvy at Bastogne Barracks, get great views at Point de vue sur Frahan, then explore the historical opulence of Chateau-Fort de Bouillon, and finally explore the ancient world of Abbaye d'Orval.
