In the afternoon you can explore Tongeren or make a trip to the Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery. Here on a bluff overlooking the Belgian countryside, 7,989 of American World War II dead are buried. Most of them were killed during the Battle of the Bulge in late 1944 and during the advance into Germany in 1945. Like all American military cemeteries in Europe, Henri-Chapelle is both beautiful and sombre, with its sweeping rows of white crosses honoring those who gave their lives for their country. This afternoon you can explore historic Tongeren.
