The River Meuse runs through Verdun forming several canals throughout the valley, surrounded by hills with historical fortresses, battlefields, and underground barracks, as well as a healthy beer brewing culture.
Fort Douaumont and Castle of Sedan will appeal to history buffs. Let the collections at Verdun Memorial and Meuse-Argonne 1918 capture your imagination. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Verdun: Sergeant York Trail (in Chatel-Chehery), Monument Americain Pennsylvanie (in Varennes-en-Argonne) and Romagne-sous-Montfaucon (Saint Mihiel American Cemetery & Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery and Memorial). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Douaumont Ossuary, explore the different monuments and memorials at Cimetiere Militaire du Faubourg-Pave, head outdoors with Base de Loisirs du Colvert, and brush up on your military savvy at Citadelle Souterraine de Verdun.
