Admire the preserved World War I and II fortifications in their original condition at Atlantic Wall Museum. The Atlantic wall was a defense system built mostly by the Nazis during World War II to protect against the Allied forces. The museum's portion of the wall includes 2 km (1.24 mi) of trenches and 60 bunkers. Exhibits include World War II propaganda, dioramas, and photographs, as well as a cinema that screens documentaries. There are also activities for children including a treasure hunt through the museum. Be prepared for a lot of walking, as this museum covers a lot of ground, and be sure to bring an umbrella rain is in the forecase, as many of the museum's focal elements are outdoors.

Be there before 15h because otherwise you won't have the time to do both parts (1st and 2nd world war). It's a closed circuit so you can't start the second part after 17h.
