Incredible fortifications and exhibits. Lots of artifacts and memorabilia. Staffed and excavated by knowledgeable and friendly volunteers. Wear comfortable shoes and appropriate outerwear as you are on the Atlantic Wall !

Remnants of some of the more northward stretches of Hitler's Atalntikwall - well worth the tour, or exploring by yourself.

2 hours tour in which you get to know kind of all, even to much 😂😂. It's nice to get in some of the bunkers and you can also admire the amazing sunset!!
