I had seen a few documentaries about the place on TV, but to see it in real life was awesome a real eye opener for people interested in WW 2

When the Blockhaus loomed through the trees, it turned out to be a lot bigger than expected. It's hard to do its real size any justice on photo. The history of the place adds a lot to the atmosphere so me and my girlfriend (who isn't particularly into world war sites) thoroughly enjoyed our one and a half hour visit.

This is an amazing site that shows the achievements of those who were forced to build it by the Nazi regime. The size and scale of this structure is amazing, well worth a visit.

Please allow a minimum of two hours for your visit as there are many boards to read and audio listen to. Bear in mind that, if it is busy when you visit, you may need to listen to the end of the audio in French or German or Dutch before you get your chance (adding to the time you take).... More

After spending the morning at La Coupole, I had to visit the Blockhaus and it is a worthy addition to your itinerary. It is almost all outdoor, however, and so wouldn't be so good on a rainy day. However, the history of the area, told to you over loudspeakers, is fascinating, as is the building itself which is almost unbelievably... More

I had visited the blockhaus as a child and it made a strong impression on me. I wasn't disappointed on returning more than 20years later. It is still incredibly evocative and thought-provoking. The bomb-damaged architecture is very impressive and I particularly like the fact that it remains largely untouched. It allows you to just wonder round and take it in... More

10€ is perhaps a bit steep for this attraction and it doesn't take the 90 minutes stated to look round the bunker, launch ramp and hotch potch collection of equipment. In its favour the tour is delivered over loud speaker in a choice of four languages. If you visit just before closing or after opening then you should be able... More

We enjoyed this visit the most,the layout and thought behind the tour is fantastic. The blockhaus is impressive too both in size and significance. I recommend anyone to visit.

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
