Hier beleef je nog de eerste WO. Alles is hier gebleven, zoals in het fort de waterkegels naar beneden aan het komen zijn, de vochtigheid, waarin de soldaten moesten leven. Zeker een aanrader8 more »Here you will experience the first Wed. Everything has remained here, as in the fortress the water cones come down, the humidity, in which the soldiers had to live. Definitely recommended8
Must visit WW1 madness. The fort of Verdun was supposed to be the strongest in it's kind. Abandoned by the French. Taken by the Germans,... after 5500 dead soldiers retaken by the French. Impressive environment on top of a hill.
I will try to summarize everything you want to know about this place. Opening hours refer to inner part of the building. You can visit outer part at any time and for free. On the way to this place you can stop and see old trenches (they are visible from the road). Inner part: it takes about 1 hour. You receive an audioguide and visit the place on your own. You have 4 languages to choose: French, English, German and the last one I do not remember, it may be Spanish. Audioguide lasts about 30 minutes, that plus 30 minutes of walking completes 1 hour visit. The ticket costs 4 euro for adult person. Unfortunately, the rooms in fort barely have anything inside, they are rather empty. I know the price is only 4E, but still, I expected something more. If I did not love history, I would be disappointed. It is cold in the fort even in sunny August, so definitely bring the jacket with you.
