Museum 'Hürtgenwald 1944 und im Frieden'

Documents, pictures and military relics all found in the Huertgen Forest after the war, will tell you the most unpleasant part of the Huertgen Forest history: The battle of the Huertgen Forest between September 1944 and February 1945. The museum contains several rooms which are full with dioramas, mannequins, remains and other artefacts.

Sadly the museum is opened just a few times a month. Please first check the opening times before a visit.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
