Bourse Militaria: The International Military Antique Fair in La Gleize
Since 1986, the Bourse Militaria, also known as the La Gleize Show, has been a prominent event taking place in June. Year after year, thousands of visitors flock to this renowned military fair, making it the largest in the Benelux region.
The show’s popularity has steadily increased, attracting over 200 exhibitors from various parts of Europe, including Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Italy, and more. These exhibitors bring forth an extensive array of military antiques and artifacts.
Spanning an impressive 2,500 meters, the fair sets up its stands along the streets of the charming Belgian Ardennes village. This location holds historical significance, being a pivotal site in the Battle of the Bulge. In December 1944, the SS troops of Kampfgruppe Peiper found themselves surrounded and were forced to abandon their vehicles. A testament to this momentous battle, the Village Square proudly showcases the King Tiger 213 (Königstiger), the sole surviving tank on the battlefield, serving as a remarkable attraction and greeting visitors to the December 44 Museum.
Experience the rich history and vibrant atmosphere of the Bourse Militaria in La Gleize, where military enthusiasts and history buffs converge to immerse themselves in a truly remarkable event.
