You have to see this place to believe it. It is immense an absolute monster of a concrete structure. Like it counterpart at "La Coupole" a few miles away and linked when you read the history of it, bear in mind as to who was forced to build these structures and as to why they were built!. You cannot really... More

This is a place well worth visiting if you have 1-2 spare hours. This initial walk through the woods has some interesting war pieces and information, and is well done. The commentary is in several languages and you have to press a button for the desired language. The blockhouse itself is truly amazing. The immense blocks of concrete are well... More

This was one place we hadn't seen in france, after going over there for years. It was well worth the visit. When you first pull up in the car in doesn't look a lot, but once you go through the reception, Well !!! The forest is so quiet only the birds singing. The tour is self guided so you can... More

The forest is so quiet, only the birds singing and the leaves bursting. Then the huge concrete buildings built by slaves are a reminder of other not so quiet times. It is so good that the area was bombed because if all the V2s were launched England would not be here it would be smashed.

We visited France for the purpose of visiting the V weapon sites in the area. This was the best - not as good for non WW2 buffs but a superb place to visit. We were amazed at the sheer size of the bunker which is the centre of the museum which one walks round via the path outside. Once get... More

A stark and chilling reminder of WW2 nazism in rural French countryside. Simple self guided walk around the site with multi language commentary at the touch of a button great couple with. Visit to La Coupole as a full day

Found this place on a map whilst researching a trip to Northern France. It is well worth the €10 entrance fee. The bunker is huge. It was never used for its planned purpose due to attacks by the Allied air forces, the Germans did re-engineer the site for the production of liquid Nitrogen instead. Imagine a V2 on a launch...

It is a must visit if you are in the region and is an engineering enthusiast. It is very sad though! It gives shiver to think that such technology was built in no time!

Simple but very effective display of how things could have gone. From being a planned base for 165 V2 rockets to being dislodged on it's foundations by a 6 ton bomb it stands as a reminder of how close things were in WW2. 135 foot high concrete bunker built by some 35,000 prisoners you need to see it to understand...
