Johanna Flanders Fields


Flanders Fields Cruise
Enjoy the playing of "the Last Post" in Ypres
Admire the Yser Tower, a symbol that was destroyed in 1946, only to be transformed into the Peace Gate, and replaced with an even higher Tower. The slogan "No more war", that was implemented in 4 different languages, has elevated the symbolic and historic meaning of this monument to a level that is unequalled to this very day. Take a walk through the famous trenches of death.

Visit the locks of Newport (Belgium) that were a turning point in the way the first World War was fought. After all, it was the flooding of the Yser that stopped the German advance in Belgium and France, making it a war that was fought from the trenches.
