Following Market Garden, the Venray area & Overloon

English

After the failure of Operation Market Garden in September 1944, the Allies attempted to widen the corridor they had conquered from Belgium to Nijmegen. In the east, they encountered fierce German resistance around Overloon. The area was difficult to access due to the many canals and brooks and incessant rainfall made maneuvering the heavy tanks even more difficult. This day trip will lead you past locations that tell stories of war and the later reconciliation between the Netherlands and Germany. At the Liberation Route audio spots you can use your phone to listen to stories of events that occurred during the Second World War.
