My father was captured during the Battle of the Bulge and escaped. We are visiting Normandy again this year to learn more as he was Day 2 landing in Omaha Beach and survived. And then going to the Battle of the Bulge.
This is my first trip to the Battle of the Bulge and of course watching the Band of Brothers and watching a PBS series. Since it is the 70th Anniversary of this Battle, I am hoping others have done or planning on going to Bastogne.
We are taking the train from Brussels to Libramknt on Nov 30th and then taking a local bus, either the De Lijin or the TEC to get to our hotel in Bastogne.
I have found a lovely guide, Henri Mignon who will be driving 3 of us, myself and my 2 sisters, to Wiltz and I hope the areas my father battled in on Monday, Dec 1st and we saved Tuesday as well and then heading to a short stay in Luxembourgh where my father was captured and they has Xmas markets. A girl has to shop! Of course the American Cemetery is a big stop once we figure how to get there.
Does anyone have experience with this or is anyone going between November 30th and December 2nd? Trying to organize a tour on Tuesday, Dec 1st and or 2nd as he charges a flat fee so more the merrier but his car only has 5 seats but maybe we could all share the cost of your rental van!
I look forward to your advice and if there is Easy Guide Books.
