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. You can charter a boat to take you out on the river and around the harbor right in the city center, and many boat owners have fishing essentials for you to catch large pike. Be sure to try the town's special pastel-colored candied almonds called dragées, a specialty confection produced since 1220 CE. Then visit a local brewery for a handcrafted beer, a local specialty since the mid-19th century. Then visit the renowned battlefields with several French and German cemeteries containing more than 13,000 crosses and the unidentified remains of more than 130,000 buried. Famous for its sugarplums, this city boasts 30 centuries of history with modern conveniences for you to enjoy, including Véloland bicycle rental, Meuse canoe rental, and forest tours in the "red zone." Arrange all the small, but important details of your Verdun trip itinerary using our France online trip itinerary maker.
