About the invasion of German troops, hard life during the occupation and the construction of a beautiful city park in wartime. Walk from Aalsterse Grote Markt, where the hated German "Meldeamt" was located, past the many reminders of life during German occupation. Pass by the former Red Cross post on the Graanmarkt, St. Martin's Church and the towpath along the Dender, where heavy fighting raged and much more. Be sure to visit the city park. You'll find the Melkhuisje, a cozy brasserie with a terrace overlooking the playground.
