This was also a great stop to see the German artillery. Lots to explore inside and outside the artillery. Looks just as it was in the day. Then we drove down to see the artificial harbor. You could see it in the distance but worth...More

This is a fascinating place to visit. To be able to see up close and touch the massive, original German guns on their emplacements is quite awe-inspiring. Their size and the impenetrability of the bunkers really bring home what the Allies had to contend with....More

Touring the Longues Battery offers the rare opportunity to see Atlantic Wall casements with their big guns still mounted inside. It really makes a difference. Being able to enter and walk through these old casements was one thing, but being able to examine, touch and...More
