Military Tour in Compiegne Forest and Reims in Paris
In the morning together with the driver-guide, you head southeast to Reims and on the way, you make a stop in the Compiegne Forest. In June 1940 a second treaty arranging an armistice between France and Nazi Germany was signed in this forest. Adolf Hitler wanted that the surrender should be received in exactly the same spot, where the Germans had surrendered in 1918.
You then proceed to Reims which was almost completely destroyed during the World War II, although the cathedral escaped damage. The act of Germany’s capitulation in World War II was signed here at a red brick school on May 7, 1945. During the tour, you visit the Little Red Schoolhouse and the exact room in which the surrender took place.
