Overview

Explore two original WWII Siegfried Line bunkers. Built to prevent a French attack in 1939 it became useless after the occupation of France in 1940. With the arrival of the US seventh Army in the Alsace in late 1944 the Siegfried Line was reequipped and rearmed to stop American and French Divisions from entering Germany. Fierce battles in March 1945 finally allowed the 36th Texas Division to brake through it.

Thank you for your nice comments. Unfortunately we are only a few volonteers to operate, clean and maintain the museum. I'm constantly looking for new volonteers to help us, but for many their weekend is reserved for their families.
