Outdoor museum for anyone interested in WW2. The car park is poorly signposted but don’t give up it’s worth a visit. Discover the site at your own pace included in the admission is an audio guide.

Must see for every person interested in history especially in wwii. The site is marked with yellow arrows which allows one to follow the path through tunnels and bunkers. Would absolutely recommend seeing it!
