Duration : 3 . 5 Hours Price : Complimentary Walking : Moderate

Travel by coach to the outskirts of Antwerp to tour one of Europe ' s best - preserved prison camps . This chilling venue shows how even Belgium was not spared the horror and brutality of the Nazi concentration camp program .

Built in 1909 on the site of an ancient Roman fort , Fort Breendonk was intended as part of the port of Antwerp ' s outer defensive ring . The moated fortress ended up being surrendered to German hands after only a seven - day siege early in WW1 . At the start of WW2 , Belgium ' s King Leopold III brought Breendonk back into service as headquarters for the Flemish command . But , once again , the fortress ' fortunes were not rosy - it was soon abandoned in the face of Germany ' s relentless advance . By this point militarily obsolete , the fort was used by the Nazis for darker purposes : the SS established it as a prison camp . Some 3 , 500 reluctant guests - dissidents , freedom fighters , Jews in transit to Nazi death camps elsewhere - were subjected to the " Hell of Breendonk . " Thanks to this life of forced labor , vicious beatings and wanton executions , half of them never left . After Liberation in 1944 , the allies operated Breendonk as an internment camp for Flemish collaborators . Today , it serves as a national museum - and a vivid , well - preserved reminder of the horrors of war . In tribute to those whose lives were so darkened here , a commemorative floral crown will be placed on a monument sacred to Breendonk ' s victims during your two - hour guided tour , led by a local historian .

Important Notes : This tour ' s activity level is considered " Moderate " and includes about 800 yards of walking over surfaces that are at times uneven ( cobblestones and pebbles ) . Weather in the Low Countries can change rapidly , so bring along an umbrella and sunscreen .
