Ploegsteert woods are a strolling zone that each family is going to enjoy. The paths, accessible all year round, allow walkers to enjoy their charm and tranquillity. These woods, however, were occupied throughout almost the whole war by British forces who suffered severe losses.

A walk round Plugstreet

“A walk round Plugstreet” is a flyer enabling you to discover the Christmas Truce spot, the UEFA Christmas Truce monument and other 14-18 memorial sites as well as three British cemeteries in the midst of the wood. The sites have the advantage of being close to Interpretation Centre “Plugstreet 14-18 experience”.


The quadrilingual map “Deulys” details 7 pedestrian / bike / car loops which allow you to discover the main memorial sites of the towns in question : Armentières (F), Comines-Warneton (B), Heuvelland (B), Messines (B), Wervicq (F), Wervik (B) and Wambrechies (F).

The whole tour is also represented on the map.

Little extras

Why not try the “little extras” by the Tourist Office of Comines-Warneton ? Flicking through some history pages, catching plays of forms or material, hearing a sign whisper, touching the impact of a bullet, feeling the emotion of memorial sites.
