The ‘Trench of Death’ Visitors Centre

Visitors Center
Diksmuide

The Trench of Death at Dixmude is the last remnant of the Belgian First World War trench system. In 2014 the attached interpretation centre was thoroughly refurbished. The history of the infamous Trench of Death is recalled through fifteen interactive applications, pictures, film footage and over one hundred original objects. The visitor is confronted with both life and death, and some personal stories really get under one’s skin. A gigantic aerial picture taken in 1916 makes it possible to compare past and present-day landscapes. Last year a German bunker was incorporated into the site: both sides of the war story can now be told. The Trench of Death: a soldiers’ hell during the war, a touching tourist highlight since 1919.
