This is our story

The concept of the Western Front Trail grew out of the Via Sacra - Western Front Way, a 1000 km long walking route that connects the entire Western front line between Nieuwpoort in Belgium and the Swiss Pfetterhouse. Of these, 96 kilometers run through the Westhoek, where the Western Front Trail is designed to become a place to walk, reflect on the atrocities of the war and a lasting memory of the fallen during the First World War.
