Help for far eastern Belgium/Bulge area?

Jump to last reply

Some of you have seen my other thread - now I've discovered more details and have a better idea where I want to stay. My Dad was in the battle of the Bulge and especially fighting for Elsenborn Ridge. I originally thought I wanted to stay near Bastogne but w/ some new details I've learned, I now know a few villages where my Dad's platoon was.

So w/ that info . . . Here are my current thoughts -- I'm taking the Eurostar/local train from London through to Brugge. Staying just 1 night. The next afternoon I want to travel back across the country to the area SE of Liege for 3 nights/2 full days. After that I'll travel to Amsterdam for 3 nights and back to London for a few days.

So my main questions are:

1) Good town to base in for exploring the bulge area? Needs to have train service or convenient bus service from a rail hub. Will spend most of my time around there but may take an afternoon to visit Bastogne and/or La Roche en Ardenne.

2) And if anyone has specific hotel recommendations - great. I know 'your budget?' is the next question (That's what I'd ask ;) ). But this is really sort of a bucket list quest so in a way most any budget will work. Just need the 'right property' and it is only for 3 nights.

3) I don't plan on renting a car but if that is the best/only option I will. My hope is to hire a local driver/guide for a day or 1.5 days to get to some of the sites. Any ideas for a guide/contacts in the area?

Thanks for any help/advice
