Worth seeing

Moving sight; get a sense of the slaughter (senseless) of the entire war, but also the bravery of many, otherwise nameless, men.

Having read a history of this battle, it was incredible to see it in person. The newly opened museum is excellent. The Ossuary is beautiful and sad. Fort Douaumont is worth the tour. There is so much to see here; be sure to allow at least a full day to see Verdun....maybe more

On a gray, showery May afternoon, we were soon aware that we were in the footsteps of the terrible struggle of exactly 100 years ago. Along the entry road, the unevenness of the forest floor brought us to the realization that 100 years later, the ground was still pitted all around by the intense bombardment coming from kilometers away by...

The cemetery is a well maintained tribute to all those who lost their lives here. Each grave has a little rose planted at the base of a cross. Unfortunately, the Ossuary had limited operating hours and was closed for the two hour lunch break. We left disappointed. Try to time your visit better than we did.

This is a very good battle field to visit since many of the main sites are preserved, though much of the wider battle field is now forested, so it is difficult on the ground to grasp the topography and the relative positions (and proximity) of the various sites. I would recommend a little bit of research before visiting (Wikipedia is... More

One of the many impressive sites in history which has been well preserved, defiantly worth a visit & to remember those who fell there.

The results of a historical mistake that was allowed to gain a momentum unprecedented in modern times. The cost to human lives is clearly visible, as a monument to their sacrifices.

Really amazing preservation of a battle that occurred 100 years ago. Highly recommend just exploring the area and taking it all in. Kind of a hidden gem in the French countryside.

I knew little about WW I before traveling to France last summer. I decided to go to Lorraine and Verdun because it was convenient. I rented a car after driving down from Frankfurt. It is a beautiful area filled with fabulous scenery and amazing history.
