A tragic and heartbreaking story. Interesting “before and after photos” are shown here.

We will follow some (or all), of Kampfgruppe Joachim Peiper’s “Rollbahn ” route during the “The Battle of The Bulge”.

We start at the exact point, near the infamous Dragon’s teeth of the Westwall, where a huge column of tanks, artillery pieces, trucks and soldiers entered the forest, passing numerous American “Company K” fighting positions and foxholes, on either side of the trail and down to the Olef & Jansbach creeks.

OPTIONAL HIKE: We then climb the hill the other side of the valley, on route to Krinkelt & Rocherath. Severe battles took place all along this route.

It is a beautiful and exciting forest hike, surrounded by nature, following in the footsteps of the many brave men that fought here.

After reaching Krinkelt & Rocherath, to view the 99th Infantry aid station and various command posts, trenches, shell crators etc – from both the American’s and the German’s, we return to our vehicle and follow the rest of the route by car, that Peiper’s armoured column took, all the way to the final devastating battle at beautiful La Gleize.
