Blockhaus Pionnier 14-18: a memorial museum in Comines
Museum or Interpretation Centre
This museum, located in Comines-Warneton (Wallonia), retraces the life of the German soldiers who lived in this former blockhaus during the Great War.
The site originally built in the town centre had been abandoned after the first world war. With time it got covered with rubbles and ivy, hidden in plain sight. Rediscovered by history enthusiasts, it now is a museum explaining the life of the soldiers stationed there between 1914 and 1918. The 3 rooms also feature a collection of German military objects
