It is over hundred years ago since the First World War started. The fierce, intense battles left this region completely devastated. Over the years, however, cities and villages were slowly rebuilt and farm fields and woods were restored. The former front lines are no longer obvious in the landscape. And yet, they stir people’s imagination.
This app guides you through the region, exploring the Ypres Salient landscape to discover the front lines.
138 memorial trees, dotted across the Ypres Salient, mark the front line in the landscape. They pinpoint the location of the front in 1915–1917. The app helps you discover the memorial trees, and enjoy a view of `then and now’ through aerial photos.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
