Flémalle Fort is a large rectangular structure in the Liège Fortified Position, one of the twelve defensive forts surrounding Liège designed by Brialmont in 1888. It was forced to surrender to the Germans on 16 August 1914.
Rearmed in the inter-war period, visitors can see its wounds that have never really healed, the stigmata of German artillery bombardments in 1940.
Modart set up his command post for the Liège Fortified position here, unaware of the power of the Luftwaffe’s terrifying 500kg bombs, which changed the outline of the upper part of the fort forever. The ventilation tower was reduced to ruins by the German artillery.
Visitors can also participate in the "VR 40 Experience Tour" a virtual-reality visual experience that explore the fort and its garrison on the eve of the fighting. 
The museum’s unique collection of militaria, documents and uniforms allows you to explore the glory days of Belgian manufacturing... A must-see!
