  • Seemed a very interesting place to visit, but on entry we were asked did we have face masks (Corona situation). Nope, as trenches tend to be OUTside and there was hardly anybody about. Well, in that.....  more »
  • A small museum and an extensive reconstructed trench along the river Iser. It's very interesting to see how these trenches were laid out and the history associated with this site.  more »
  • This a beautiful piece of history in the hart of world war 2. This is a story that needs to be told and the way they show you the place where is the soldiers lived is very nice. The fact that you can walk on the site freely is very nice. You can visit it at your own speed.
  • I will comment solely on trenches (I will not comment on museum as I was not there). It costs 5E to enter the site. You visit the site on your own. It takes about 1 hour. There is barely anything apart from empty trenches. I expected something more, especially for this price. You can visit similar trenches in Canadian National Vimy Memorial for free. If you are about to visit more WW1-related places, I recommend to skip this one.
