Welcome to the 8th Annual 'Bridge at Remagen' reenactment!
8th Annual Bridge at Remagen Battle Reenactment- Saturday August 6th 3:00 p.m.
Camps are open to public on Friday evening Aug. 5 and on Saturday from about 11:00 till 2:00 p.m., and also after the battle, on Sat.
Camp grounds are located just down river of the bridge, with plenty of ample parking. There are military venders located at the camp where souvenirs and collectibles may be purchased. Small lunches and sandwiches may be purchased at an authentic military field kitchen, located on camp grounds.
Just as the battle begins on Sat. there will be German civilians, carrying their most valuable possessions, retreating through the town and crossing the bridge. As per the original battle. We believe there are no other reenactments that show what German civilians did during this battle or any other battle.
All veterans of all Wars are invited and we have a large viewing area with seats and shade. The shaded area is reserved for our older veterans. Special parking for handicap persons and veterans. Water is provided for veterans and toilets are on site. This area is located at Buckingham and King street, close by the bridge.
The Tidioute bridge closes to the public at 2:00 p.m. REOPENS at 4:00 p.m. This is to prepare the bridge for the pyrotechnics.
Tidioute is a small town located on the banks of the Allegheny River. The town very closely resembles Remagen Germany. The river is 500ft wide, the Rhine River is 700 ft wide. Both bridges are steel girder construction. The woods, mountains, and ravines of Tidioute are almost a perfect match for the Remagen area.
We are expecting between 250 and 300 reenactors. There will be dozens of military vehicles, including both German and U.S. armor. Halftracks, tanks etc.
The battle in town is very up close with the public being only yards away, or you may watch across the river on a hill just off Route 62.
The battle starts in Tidioute, the bridge is blown after German troops retreat, and ends on the other side the river, with the capture of the bridge, and surrender of the Germans.
Parking in Tidioute is limited to on street parking or wherever you may find it. There are a few small restaurants located in Tidioute.
There are commercial motels located in Warren Pa. Located about 15 miles north of Tidioute on rt. 62.
PUBLIC SAFETY NOTICE: Please stay behind all safety yellow barricade tape and ropes.
Armor vehicles have blind spots and cannot see you or your children if you are in the street. Do not pick up any spent brass blank cartridges until after the battle. They get very hot. Please obey all FIRE AND POLICE PERSONNEL.
