The Fort of Schoenenbourg was the most heavily bombarded fort on the Maginot line. Germans dropped 160 tons of bombs on the fort, but despite the bombardment, the fort maintained it's defence capability. An interesting place to visit but wear the warm jacket.

Great experience! Huge underground city for 600 soldiers with power plant, train, war rooms and smart engineering solutions. Plan at least 2 hours here to walk through 3,5 km of tunnels and combat blocks. Good idea would be to read about the whole Maginot line...More
