Trench of Death - Diksmuide
The Trench of Death at Diksmuide is the last remnant of the Belgian First World War trench system. In 2014 the attached interpretation centre was thoroughly refurbished, where the history of the infamous Trench of Death is recalled through fifteen interactive applications, pictures, film footage and over one hundred original objects. The visitor is shown deeply personal stories from life and death from daily life in the trenches. A gigantic aerial picture taken in 1916 makes it possible to compare the landscape of the war with present-day landscapes.
