The 'The Legacy of Passchendaele' hiking trail map incites you to discover our beautiful municipality. Along the Geluveld Hiking Trail you can enjoy wide landscapes and beautiful panoramas in the valley of the Leie and around the French border region. Along the way you learn a lot about the history of this village which was of great German importance in WWI. The village was located on the Menin road as a direct connection between Ypres and Menin. After so many bloody battles, the British pushed through to the edges of the village in 1917, which was at that moment already erased from the map.

A map of the hiking trail can be found at the information panel at the starting point. The trail is signposted with hexagonal signs and along the trail the information is displayed on multilingual information panels.The hiking trail map with the 3 Legacy or Passchendaele walking trails (Tyne Cot, Polygon Wood and Geluveld) can be purchased at the Tourist Office at a price of € 1.50/map.
