As a still active garrison town with roots dating back to the time of the creation of Belgium in the 1830s, Bourg-Léopold has played a key role in the history of war and peace in the Meuse-Rhine region for almost two centuries.

The most eventful chapter in this long history was the Second World War. It is therefore not surprising that the municipality of Bourg-Léopold, in the framework of the Terra Mosana project, highlights the Market Garden operation and the liberation of the Euregio in 1944 - 1945.

First of all, you will discover a film showing the briefing of a British general during the "Market Garden" operation. Then you will be able to live a spectacular virtual reality experience that will put you in the role of a Spitfire pilot during the crossing of the Rhine in 1945.

Both experiences will be on display in Bourg-Léopold at the Liberation Garden, a brand new state-of-the-art World War II museum in the shadow of the Siegfried Line.

This interactive experience will be available in early 2022.


Discover the Terra Mosana exhibition and dive into the common history of the Euregio.

The exhibition is located in the lobby of the City Hall and is available until February 2022.
