Fortress Visit Report : Fort Tancrément Internals

This fort is run by a small group. The fort is not as big or as famous as Eben Emael so it does not attract as many visitors or the funds. Nevertheless, it is a fascinating fort to visit and to talk to the guides. It was the last fort in Belgium to surrender to the Germans.

Long term goal is to return guns to the fighting blocks
