We had a fantastic private tour here during our trip to Metz. The tour guide was so informative and the whole team was very welcoming. Definitely a sad tour, but well worth seeing. I would really recommend a trip here if you are near Metz.

I went to fort de queuleu in October. The place takes some effort to find from the bus station. But the view in forest is great, and staffs very nice and passionate transcending history from WWII.
