The fort itself is very impressive to visit because of it's extensive historic significance to the battle of Verdun. The top of the fort also offers some stunning views on the valley below. The only downside of the fort is the poor organization and information...More

My family with two teenage boys visited both Fort Vaux and Fort Duouamont, and Vaux was our favorite. The admission fee includes an audio tour that is fabulous. It kept my boys interested and did an excellent job of describing what happened there. The fort...More

Very cool fort but I wish we had gotten the audio guides for more information. Great gift shop with souvenirs and even books in English. Entry fee for adults 4€.

It appears that caretakers of Fort de Vaux have done an excellent job of preserving this historical fortress while retaining the bleak ambience that its occupants in WW1 encountered. It was cold & damp, but this added to the perception in a way that a...More
