This construction is the best example of the military engineering of the Prussian Empire: tons of concrete and a lot of weapons to protect Strasbourg from the French Kingdom. more than 2 hours and half of exciting visit inside the mounting that hides Fort Mutzing. Also my children were surprised from the way the German soldiers spent their daily... More

The tour is great and well set organised. It does take 2.5 hours and even on a cold day you could get quite chilly being underground for 2 hours. However if you are well wrapped up it is excellent. The only downside is that we were with two none french speakers and I felt that more of the maps and... More

I went with my girlfriend and her parents to visit this fortress. As we couldn't rent a car the fort guide Noemi actually came to the train station to pick us up. The tour was really detailed and taught us a lot about the history of the region. And the remnants of the fortress was very impressive. I have traveled... More

Drove 2 hours to get here after being advised by a leaflet that they do tours in English. Only to arrive and be told they only had tours in French and German that day. Also you have to go with the guide, you can't just wander around the fort. Very disappointed as the place looks brilliant

Also if you only speak English, the English tour is at 3:30pm every day This fort was built Pre - First World War, the complex is absolutely massive, only a small section is open for... More

.Ok I went to humour my husband, who finds military fascinating, but it was impressive! The section that you can visit is a fraction of this absurdly enormous folly under a hill that should have been growing good Alsatian wine. The guides are great and it is pleasantly cool on a hot day and not too strenuous ( I watched... More

This fort was build during German administration between the end of the 19th century and the first world war. Therefor the concept is quite modern, the buildings are spread on a large area, hidden underground and linked with tunnels. There is also modern war machinery to see, a lot of it restored with loads of unpaid hours by volunteers. Kitchens,... More
