The Battle of the Frontiers was fought very close to the scene of the Battle of the Meuse. This circuit will take you to both places. The first battle saw the French garrison retreat from the citadel to Verdun. The second battle was fought, in order to cross the Meuse. Two
"monuments" will help you discover the riches of the Montmédy and Stenay sectors, which are not only military, but also of historical, architectural and environment importance
Length of circuit : 55 KM
The agenda is an invaluable tool and will help you organise your weekends during the Great War centenary year. It will also enable you to take part in free commemorative and festive events, by providing you with an exclusive à la carte programme!
After the Great War, which began 100 years ago, all that remained of this region were battlefields and destroyed villages. In the same place, you will now find idyllic landscapes and picturesque villages. In order to help you visit the region, the CHEMINS DE MEMOIRE project has developed 10 CIRCUITS, ranging from 35 - 80 km. As you pass along the trails, information points will help you find out more about the special and little known history of the Battle of the Frontiers.
You can pick up a free map from the region's tourist offices.
