During this guided coach tour through central Limburg the liberation of this region is told.
The tour starts and ends in Roermond. It passes through several towns and villages and past locations in the region where memorable events took place. Some of the monuments you will visit are the monument to remember the ships cemetery in Maasbracht, the war monument and mass grave in Montfort, the chapel “Kapel in ‘t Zand” and the monument Luzekamp (where 14 men and boys were executed in 1944).
Photo books in the bus illustrate the devastation in the area during and just after the liberation.
The guide will tell both the story of the liberators and the experiences of the inhabitants of Middel Limburg during this time.
The tour shows how difficult the advance was.
The distance between Thorn en Roermond is approximately 15 kilometers. Yet it took the allied forces nearly six months, from mid September 1944 till March 1st 1945, to liberate this small part of Holland!
