Tiger II Tank La Gleize

Here a trace, there a memory. Only if you drive into the hamlet of La Gleize via the Church road, you feel the ominous strengths of that dark December month. Because there, still as massive and threatening as it was on Saturday 16 December 1944, when it rattled over the border for that daring adventure, Obersturmbannführer Jochen Peipers last Tiger-tank stands.

This Tiger II (Königstiger) stands in front of the Historical Museum December 1944.
