Rendez-vous at National Monument of the Marne Victory in Mondement Rue Général Humbert 51120 Mondement-Montgivroux fr

In Champagne, near Mondement in the southern part of the Marne department, stands the national monument commemorating the first Marne battle that took place during World War One. The French parliament decided to have this enormous milestone (more than 100ft high) built shortly after the end of World War One. This monument represents the courage, suffering and sacrifice of soldiers who fought the battle of the Marne. It is a monumental stone, some 35m high. The site is open to the public all year round and the museum is open from June to September, on Sundays from 3 pm to 6 pm. This historic museum recalls the battles fought and displays objects and documents from the time.
