Escursioni a Bruxelles - Alla Scoperta di Bruges
Escursioni a Bruxelles: Viaggia indietro nella storia. Le nostre commode vetture ti condurranno a Bruges in una sola ora e mezzo. La nostra guida ti incontrerà all’arrivo e ti condurrà presso il parco Minnewater (il lago dell’amore) e il Beghinaggio. In seguito inizieremo il nostro tour a piedi e scoprirai tutti i punti principali della città come la chiesa di Our Lady, la Market Square con la Beffroi, la cappella dell’Holy Blood e molto altro. Non dimenticare le tue scarpe da passeggio! Ti sarà concesso del tempo libero per effettuare visite individuali.
Un “beghinaggio” è un gruppo di piccoli edifici usati dalle “beghine”, monache laiche della chiesa cattolica romana, fondati nel 13° secolo nei Paesi Bassi e comprendenti le donne e gli uomini religiosi che hanno deciso di servire Dio, ma senza ritirarsi dal mondo.
Minnewater Park è un romantic parco con lago che in primavera ed estate si riempe di bellissimi cigni, animali che rappresentano uno dei simboli di Bruges. La legenda narra che nel 1488 la gente di Bruges fecero un’esecuzione di uno degli amministratori cittadini nominato da Massimiliano d’Austria; una volta che il duca guadagnò di nuovo il potere, ordinò che i cigni (presenti nel suo stemma) fossero tenuti nel canale per sempre.

Escursioni a Bruxelles - Hard Rock Café Bruxelles
Escursioni a Bruxelles: La rivoluzione dell’Hard Rock arriva a Bruxelles, dove il nuovo Hard Rock Café ha portato la migliore cucina americana al mondo nella capitale dell’Europa. Banchetta con deliziosi hamburger e forse sorseggia uno dei legendari uragani di margarita mentre ammiri le mura abbellite con cimeli di inestimabile valore di star come John Lennon, gli Who, i Sex Pistols, Bono, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley e Madonna. Cerca anche il Rock Wall™ Solo, una parete interattiva con uno schermo touch che contiene la collezione di quasi tutte le sedi Hard Rock del mondo.
Come tutte le grandi rivoluzioni, non si pensava che l’Hard Rock avrebbe avuto un grande successo. Era il 1971 e mentre i dolci anni ’60 avevano lasciato il posto ai nuovi ’70, le mode e i sapori stavano cambiando. Due affamati giovani americani si trovavano a Londra e non riuscivano a trovare un buon posto dove mangiare un buon hamburger. . . così, aprirono una società nelal capitale inglese. Il loro padrone di casa non pensava che gli affari sarebbero andati bene, quindi gli concesse un affitto di soli 6 mesi. Quattro decenni dopo, ci sono circa 200 Hard Rock Cafés in più di 50 paesi in tutto il mondo.
La prima maglia uscì per le strade nel ’74 e il primo cimelio arrivò nel ’79, quando Eric Clapton chiese di appoggiare la sua chitarra Fender sul suo sgabello preferito, in modo da segnarlo come posto privato. Al giorno d’oggi, la collezione rock’n’roll possiede più di 74.000 pezzi ed è la più grande nel suo genere. Dal 1982, l’Hard Rock Café si è espanso globalmente e il resto, come dicono, è storia (questa frase è ancora scritta nel locale)!

Escursioni a Bruxelles - The battle of Bulge - Bastogne - Small Group
Escursioni a Bruxelles: We leave Brussels at 07:30am and need only 90 min to reach the US cemetery of HENRI-CHAPELLE, where almost 8000 GI’s lay at rest, most of them died during the Battle of the Bulge. Then we continue along the north-eastern frontline and driving through the Nature Park of the Ardennes, we arrive in BÜLLINGEN/BUDGENBACH to admire the monument honoring the fierce resistance of THE BIG RED ONE, so important to delay the German offensive. Almost 500 GI’S lost their life here at this strategic position.
And soon we reach now Malmedy/Baugné. Here we pay our respect at the Memorial for the 84 American Prisoners, murdered by the SS. After our optional lunch stop in Malmedy, we call successively at the US halftrack in Stavelot before passing at Trois Ponts, where this branch of the German offensive was stopped as a bridge over the river Amblève was blown up by the US, and the famous German KING-TIGER tank in La Gleize. From here we follow the alternative road that was taken by the Waffen SS and reach the village of Cheneux, where a monument is remembering the heavy fighting resulting in the killing of 25 civilians and many military man from both sides. We cross the bridge over the river Lienne, another spot of heavy confrontation that ended when the US troops blew up the bridge. Next on our tour is the city of Houffalize, very severely damaged during the battle, but we can also see here an almost undamaged German PANTHER tank.
From here we take the highway straight to Luxembourg/Hamm to visit the US military cemetery where General G. Patton is lying at rest amidst 4500 US soldiers. Then we drive back in the direction of Bastogne, and our first stop is the spot where the ring around Bastogne was broken the 26th of December by Capt Boggess of the 3rd army. In the city center of Bastogne, we stop at the monument to General Mc Auliffe and the Sherman tank. A couple of minutes later, we arrive at the famous MARDASSON memorial and the new BASTOGNE WAR MUSEUM that you can visit (entrance to the museum is not included). Afterwards, we drive in the woods to see the remaining Foxholes – some of them are still well preserved thanks to the common efforts, and we make also a stop at the monument honoring the E company of the 101th Airborne.

Escursioni a Bruxelles - Waterloo Private Tour - with Transfer
Escursioni a Bruxelles: We leave Brussels directly in the direction of the Center of Waterloo, and pass the Wellington museum.
During our driving tour on the battlefield itself we start with the eastern corner of the battlefield with the “Ferme de la PAPELOTTE” and the famous sunken road that was so heavy in casualties for the French Cavalry. Back to the center of the battlefield we pass the Gordon monument, the “LA HAIE SAINTE” Farm where such a heavy fighting took place and only taken by Napoleon in the very late afternoon. At the “BELLE ALLIANCE” farm we have an outlook from the same observation point that Napoleon used. Then, in the village of Plancenoit, we reach the monument for the Prussians: a turning point in the battle, as we can see the eastern fields from where the Prussians were coming, despite being beaten 2 days earlier in Ligny. This arrival at the “good place and the good time” and the fantastic defense of Hougoumont have been crucial in the result of the battle. Then we drive to the very interesting new visitor center, putting the Battle in a more general European perspective and you can assist to a fabulous presentation of the Battle in 3G. Of course you can climb the Lion Hill and visit the Panorama painting.
But the highlight is without any doubt the presentation at the grange of HOUGOUMONT farm, on the spot where 200 years ago the battle in the battle took place. By using new technologies you will get a very impressive end of your visit.
