As you travel through the villages of the Stenay area and Dunois valley, there are no signs that fighting took place in these havens of peace. The Meuse valley is packed with fauna, flora and exceptional heritage.
However, appearances are deceptive, in this case, as the Montmédy garrison came to a tragic end in the forest at Brandeville on 29 August 1914.
Length of circuit: 35 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.
