On 24 December 1944, as the Battle of the Bulge was raging, the German 2nd Panzer Division, on the way to the Maas, was stopped at Celles by the American 2nd Armored Division and the British 3rd Tank Regiment.
A Panther tank and a commemorative stele recall this important event of World War II at the crossroads of the Dinant – Ciney roads.
