Liberation Route to become hiking trail

In 2020, a new hiking trail from London to Berlin, (around 3,000km) will make it possible to walk the Liberation Route Europe, following in the footsteps of the Allied troops at the end of World War II.

Liberation Route Europe Foundation cooperated with the Dutch hiking organization Wandelnet and prominent American architect Daniel Libeskind to create the Liberation Route Hiking Trail.

To be inaugurated in 2020 and stretching almost 3,000 km from London to Berlin through 5 countries with various branches, while passing through hundreds of points of interest, the route will offer a very special momentum at a time when Europe is commemorating 75 years after WWII.

Also included are routes that branch off from the main route. A network of hiking specialists and historians was established to develop a detailed route based on existing trails including WWII locations, tourism sites and accommodation.

American Architect Daniel Libeskind, in turn, designed a series of route markers called “Vectors of Memory” which will unite, for the first time, countries, regions, important sites, milestones, and stories in the last phase of World War II by celebrating the procured freedom, harmony, and peace.
