  • My third visit. I still find it fascinating. An informative couple of hours. The history of the grand bunker, albeit very short, is incredibly interesting. From the small number of German soldiers who were stationed here, to the British Engineers, the 'tommies' who took the bunker several days after the main invasion by tricking the Germans inside. When visiting you get the feel for what it must have been like to have lived inside it, the small cramped rooms. The entrance was so well defended, trying to take it must have been daunting. In essence it was an observation post for the German guns and batteries along the coast, but still nevertheless a formidable yet relatively small structure. You can clearly see it from the ferry as you arrive and depart Ouistreham. You can visit for as short or as long as you wish, having visited three times now there's still always more to each visit. Its so important that this history remains. I have enjoyed my visits here, fond memories visiting with good friends, one who is very sadly no longer with us who I will always remember sat smiling in the main observation room during our visit in 2016.
