Westfront Nieuwpoort

Museum
Nieuwpoort

On the sluice complex stands a monument for the fallen Belgian front soldiers and their commander King Albert I. It was constructed on the initiative and with support of the National War Veterans’ Association in 1938. It was made out of clay dug from the banks of the IJzer river. Here and there are still traces of ordnance in the stones. On top of the monument you can enjoy a panoramic view of the IJzer plains and the city of Nieuwpoort.
