WW1 walking route
The ‘Zandvoorde walking loop’ follows the theme of ‘2014-2018 – 100 years of the Great War’ and tells the story of Zandvoorde during the First World War. The village held an important strategic position due to its higher position on the Mid-West Flemish Hillside. The unique view of the surroundings combined with the German defence line meant that Zandvoorde could only be liberated during the Final Offensive in 1918. Download the walking map here.
