Scenery SS-Movie Battle of the Bulge

There is a famous SS-film taken at Tondorf just before the Battle of the Bulge with some King Tiger tanks of s.SS-Pz.Abt. 501 (Kampfgruppe Peiper). The Tigers number 008 and 222 were later destroyed or abandoned in Belgium near La Gleize and Stavelot.

The street in Tondorf shown in the film has changed very little today, with the Gasthaus Zum Weißen Roß still in business.
