I visited two Maginot Line forts on my trip; this one and the Fort de Four a Chaux. In Schoenenbourg you have the ability to go inside and visit at your leisure. It is really fascinating. And you need about 3 hours in total. But...More

I knew this was a "no frills" location, with limited visitor facilities, but it's fascinating, and well worth seeing. We couldn't arrange a tour in English, so we saw it, self-guided, at our own pace. My wife finds walking difficult, but there's an elevator and...More

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...More

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....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...More
