3 stars, not for the bunker - that's a must see, but for the rather hotch potch story the exhibit tells. IMHO the site should tell the story of the V2 project and focus on just that. Currently it has all kinds of things there (mini sub anyone??). Apart from one video I couldn't get a picture of what the... More

After seeing a flyer whilst staying in France, we decided to visit this place. The leaflet did not have a satnav latitude/longitude reference to use, and was a little difficult to find - although there are sign posts once you get within about 5 miles. If you are reading this, you probably know what the site is all about. The... More

Well worth a visit - tucked away in the countryside, the scale of the actual blockhaus is a sobering reminder of the horror of war, and is a contrast to the peaceful surrounding countryside. Well laid out, with interesting exhibits along the walk. Quite wheelchair friendly too.

I visited this as part of a Leger battlefield tour and was blown away by the size of it. As you are walking up to it you don't notice it until you turn the corner and bang there it is. It is huge and the work that went into it was unbelievable. This is worth seeing and a must for... More

This is a breathtaking experience - I don't want to give away too much detail as I think it would spoil things a little bit when you visit. Suffice it to say that the blockhaus was an incredible experience, and has been put together extremely well to give the visitor a sense of awe at both the scale of the... More

This place is both frightening and magnificent in equal measure. Well run with plenty of English translation recordings as you walk around. You must visit if you are in the area, you will never forget your first glimpse of the Blockhaus.

This tour was brilliant, i learnt alot and was amazed by the scale of this building. It's amazing how it's been left nearly exactly as it was when it was bombed and felt like we were able to see the reality of the impact of war.

We drove almost 90 minutes off our route to visit the Blockhaus not knowing what to expect. You must see this place... it is 100% worth the visit...

An extraordinary building with a well described history. I preferred to go without a guide, but found plenty of information available on the press-button multi-language system. Some interesting additional exhibits made it a worthwhile visit,
