Reading the details of the history of this area shows once again of the futility of it all, so many perished for no gain at all. Continual fighting over the same piece of land for what?
Site has been renovated to maintain the appearance but no comparison to what actual life was like so long ago. Photographic displays are well presented. You need a credit/debit card to get in.

I've been wanting to visit the Dodengang for years and finally had the chance a week ago, and I wasn't disappointed, if you have nay interest in the Great War you must visit, actually if you have no interest in history you should still visit. Just remember to bring a debit or credit card with you for the automatic turnstile.

A real insight into just how brutal the trench warfare was, definitely a must visit however, we had our mother with us who uses a mobility scooter and probably 90% was inaccessible for her so be aware

Lovely location ‘now’ right next to the canal. The trenches are as they were but have been made more sturdy with concrete sandbags but these are done very well, many little rooms that go off & a German bunker that is still standing. The information centre is well presented but is extremely hot so unable to stay to long, I think the air con was broke, it made it very uncomfortable. Toilets available but no refreshments.

More than meets the eye here. The visitor centre is well laid out with plenty of information in several languages, with some PC screens allowing you to read more or less on each subject, to suit individual preferences.

From an external 2nd storey viewing platform you can see the layout of the trenches, which stretch out before you.

To walk along these well preserved trenches (original sandbags replaced by concrete filled ones) is a very sobering experience
