We spent several hours here; there's a lot to see and it's a lot of walking. Good signage in three languages [French, German, and English]. There were a few docents in some of the areas, who could provide additional information. But the place really speaks for itself. Glad we visited!

You have probably heard of this fortress, which is a part of the Ligne Maginot. During high season, you can visit it on your own, but otherwise, you will have to walk with a French or a German guide at 2.30 for about 3 hours. It is amazing to see the tunnels, the kitchen, the gun turret, but you have... More

Allow 2/3 hours for this visit which requires walking along about 2/3 kms of tunnels. It is really a very worthwhile visit as it is so historically interesting. It is maintained by an association of volunteers and the guides stationed at various points are passionate about the fort and full of information that they are only too pleased to pass... More

From the outside, all you see is the entrance to a bunker in the forest, but once inside and having taken a modern lift down into the earth - who knows how far but it seems like at least 50 metres - I was amazed at what is under the ground, even though I had previously seen photos of various...

This fortress on the Maginot Line is a must see if you are in the Strasbourg France area. Part of a network of tunnels, fortresses and bunkers built by the French after WWI to prtoect from future German invasions. It didnt help in WWII, but the remaining structures are still incredible to visit. Lots of walking though, and the air... More

Make sure you get there at open time or shortly after. The site is enormous inside & you will need 2 1/2 - 3 hours for the visit. There is a lot of walking and it is cold underground. The site is well worth the visit if you enjoy World War history and the bunker system. The place is in... More

We arrived "late" not aware of closing times but they still let us in. All I can saw is WOW! This place is mind-blowing incredible. I walked around this place in awe the entire time. Allow 2-3 hours to get around this place properly, it is massive.

We visited here today with our four children (ages 10-13). We all enjoyed it. We prepared ourselves by watching a documentary (found on YouTube) about the construction and history before visiting. My children were excited to see things in real life that they had just learned about. They also liked the guns and trains. :) Make sure to bring a... More

This great engineered French military design is actually unimaginable when you drive towards it above ground. If you're interested in Second World War History (French), visit this. Remember it is cold down under. Have something warm to wear, even during Summer.
