Citadelle Souterraine de Verdun boasts notable 17th-century architecture. The underground galleries are almost 7 km (4.3 mi) long, and were dug for shelter and for storing weapons. The citadel played an important role as a repository in World War I. The site reveals a great deal of information about the lives of the soldiers who fought here.

Very interesting, the advance in wagonnet is very well done and really allows to be attentive to everything we see. Hologram reconstructions are very well done. There is a middle ground between the visit to the forts where there are very few explanations and materials and the memorial
Nous avons apprécié cette visite à bord d’un « petit train » . Pas grand monde à cette période de l’année donc pas d’attente !!! more »We enjoyed this visit on a "small train". Not many people at this time of year so no waiting !!!
One of the WORST tours I've even been on. Some half put together mannequins. Poorly mixed sound. Too dark to actually see what we came to see - the fort! The story that they told did nothing to talk about the war, the battle, the fort, the politics of the time... to be honest, I have no clear idea what they were trying to tell us about. There should also be clear warnings that there is no way to get off the train/ride. And that you are trapped in the dark for ~25 min with strangers. Oh and do not bring your children on this tour.
Very impressive. Tells a breathtaking story!
