Icon description route Description

About the burning down of Liezele, the battle for the fort and the bitter war years in total poverty. The fort of Liezele is one of the best preserved forts of the Defence Line of Antwerp, a double belt of forts and entrenchments built to defend the National Reduit. From the fort you can walk to the village center, the Schemelbert Mill, the Wolf Chapel, Hof ter Bollen and the place where the emergency church of Liezele used to be. Especially for 100 years of the Great War you can also walk in the Fort of Liezele with an audio guide.

Monday, July 27, 2020 by GILBERTE DE BLOCKBeen to Liezele for the third time in a row , and haven't seen our own signage either. But occasionally walking nodes, 115, 125,126,127,128,121,122,123 Too bad, have therefore only done their own walk. Which walking route do these nodes belong to? There were even some in the nature reserve domain " Tekbroek", which was really worthwhile.
