Liberation route Europe Limburg

The Liberation Route in Limburg is part of the Liberation Route Europe.

What is the Liberation Route?

Liberation Route Europe is an ever-expanding international memorial route that connects important milestones in modern European history. The route links the most important regions during the advance of the Western Allies from the south of England to the beaches of Normandy, the Belgian Ardennes, Brabant, Limburg, Arnhem, Nijmegen, the Hürtgenwald and Berlin. The route continues to the Polish city of Gdańsk, where almost two generations later a democratic revolution was launched to end the separation from Europe.

What can I do with the Liberation Route?

The Liberation Route lets you experience what happened in 1944 and 1945 in the Netherlands and the German border region. At more than 100 locations in the area, there are boulders with information panels, the so-called listening places. At each listening location, you can listen to a radio play about the impressive experiences of one or more people during the final years of the war. You can download the stories of these places for free via www.liberationroute.com (also for mobile internet users).
