In 2012, my wife and I visited the Atlantic Wall and Museum in Ostende, Belgium. The tour is amazing and well worthwhile when in the area. This is part of the Atlantic Wall which was constructed prior to and during WWII to prevent an invasion of Europe by Allied forces by the Germans, and overseen by Field Marshall, Erwin Rommel. The site consists of honeycombs of tunnels and bunkers facing the English channel as well as gun emplacements which remain today.You gain a unique perspective of this place where the Germans looked out over the Channel anticipating the Allied Invasion as they did. The Museum is adjacent to the tunnels and bunkers and contains books and other displays related to the history of the Wall.There is considerable walking involved and those with fear of enclosed places need to take note.
