unbelievable place. when you go down inside you realize a pretentious it was' how every detail was thought of and probably how safe the people inside felt Today nature is so beautiful around it that its hard to imagine the horrors it represents

Costs €8 to visit. First, there is a 30m descent (either steps or lift), then several kilometres of tunnels in different directions to explore. The longest tunnel is 800m, then 20m back up to the cannon silos. You are free to walk around, though there...More

This is a large fort on the 1930s French built Maginot line. This is a worthwhile visit to see what life was like for French soldiers living in the fort. You go to the living areas and the kitchen. There is a 800 Meter tunnel...More

I visited two Maginot Line forts on my trip; this one and the Fort de Four a Chaux. In Schoenenbourg you have the ability to go inside and visit at your leisure. It is really fascinating. And you need about 3 hours in total. But...More

I knew this was a "no frills" location, with limited visitor facilities, but it's fascinating, and well worth seeing. We couldn't arrange a tour in English, so we saw it, self-guided, at our own pace. My wife finds walking difficult, but there's an elevator and...More

We spent several hours here; there's a lot to see and it's a lot of walking. Good signage in three languages [French, German, and English]. There were a few docents in some of the areas, who could provide additional information. But the place really speaks...More
