Geluveld is a household name. On 31 October, the Germans were boldly and heroically stopped there. This holding back laid the foundations for the shelling war in the region. The village remains of great importance to the Germans and is world-famous for its Menin Road, which ends under the Menin Gate in Ypres.
Along the walk are several information carriers telling you the history of Geluveld. You will also enjoy beautiful views. The wheelchair-accessible Geluveld walk is 2.6 km. Download the walking map here.
Accessible paths and sanitary facilities
The walking loop starts and ends at the corner of the church on accessible paths. The type of surface is indicated on the plan and is mainly paved. The semi-paved sections are of such quality with fine crushed stone to make it doable for wheelchair users.
There are no accessible toilets at the start site.
We recommend an attendant. This is because there are 3 low boards along the route and some sections have a gradient greater than 5%.
