The Fort de Fléron is one of twelve forts built around Liège, Belgium, in the late 19th century. The overall Fortified Position of Liège was a constituent part of the country's National Redoubt. The fort lies about 2 kilometres (1 mile) north-west of Fléron and 10 km (6 mi) south-east of Herstal at an elevation between 100–105 metres (330–344 ft). Contrasting with the French forts built in the same era by Raymond Adolphe Séré de Rivières, it was built exclusively out off unreinforced concrete rather than masonry. It saw combat during World War I and World War II but has since been preserved as a museum dedicated to peace education under UNESCO auspices as part of Project Peace on Earth. The Citadelle d'Anvers is located above Anvers city centre overlooking its harbour on its western side and that from which it takes its name: "Kanal".
