Your support plays a vital role in keeping the history of Fort Eben-Emael alive. For more than 35 years, the generosity of many people has helped us to look after the fort and the memory of the people who have served and sacrificed here. With your support we can continue this vital work, and preserve this precious place for everyone, for ever.
In 2021, we launched a project to redevelop a number of rooms in our museum area and to open up additional bunkers that have not seen daylight since WW2. As a charity, we rely on your donations to ensure that as many people as possible enjoy the fort, objects and landscape that tell the story of this unique military heritage site.

You can claim income tax relief on your donation if you are a Belgian taxpayer and are making a single payment or regular payments of at least € 40.
Please include ‘Fort Eben-Emael donation’ in the message field of your bank transfer and we will send you proof of payment for your next tax return.
This allows you to recover 45% of the value of your dontation via your annual income tax bill. A donation worth € 100 will thereby only cost you € 55.
