As a unique crossroads between history and nature, Raversyde has many assets for an unforgettable day by the sea. Here are 6 reasons why this provincial domain should be on your to-do list.
Raversyde is a unique crossroads between history and nature. After all, history is omnipresent in this beautiful landscape. Strolling through the dunes will take you back to two world wars and even to the Middle Ages. Perhaps you just want to get some fresh air? The Nature Park is an ideal spot for a nice walk.
March through WWI and WWII and explore bunkers, artillery positions and underground passages of the Atlantic Wall, one of the best-preserved parts of Germany's WWII defence line. The WWI part, Battery Aachen, recently underwent a complete renovation.
ANNO 1465, is a reconstruction of the lost medieval fishing village of Walraversijde. Based on archaeological finds you are introduced to the way of life of the villagers of that age.
A day at Raversyde is always a day well spent. After your visit to the Atlantic Wall and ANNO 1465, go for a stroll along the shoreline or have a walk in the nature park.
Raversyde is beautifully situated by the sea. In the WWI part, the Battery Aachen, which lies in a sloping dune landscape, you get a breathtaking view of the sea. The nature park also has a varied landscape.
The themes of war, the Middle Ages and nature appeal to both young and old. Raversyde is therefore an ideal outing for the whole family. Use the soldier search book to follow in the footsteps of Alfred, a German soldier who lived in Battery Aachen. Or go on a quest in Battery Saltzwedel Neu (WWII) to learn more about the Second World War.
