This monument is by far the largest of the Netherlands and stands on top of the 43 meter high Amersfoortse Berg. In the middle tower there is a carillon, which is regularly played by students of the Amersfoorts Carillonneur School.
The construction of the Belgians monument was due to the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. From Belgium, many soldiers (Belgians, but also some Germans) and a large part of the civilian population fled to the neutral Netherlands. To express Belgian gratitude for Dutch hospitality during the war it was decided to establish a memorial.
