On the occasion of "100 years Battle of Passchendaele" the public can visit a unique underground WW1 construction near the church of Zonnebeke. The underground complex is one of the best preserved dugouts in the region because the Allies built the dugout beneath the foundations of the former church. The structure consists of a main gallery of nearly 29 meters long, side corridors, five rooms and two access stairs and is about 5 meters underground. From 1 May 2017, individual visitors and groups can reserve tickets for the dugout on For safety reasons, only up to 50,000 people can visit the dugout during the commemoration period of the 100 years “Battle of Passchendaele”. After 10 November, the 'Zonnebeke Church Dugout' will be permanently closed.
