Jersey War Tunnels - German Underground Hospital, St. Lawrence

Opened to the public in 1946 and subsequently restored, Jersey War Tunnels - German Underground Hospital encompasses an underground network of tunnels, fortifications, and military installations built by the Nazis in the 1940s. Intended to serve as part of the Nazi defense of the island, part of this particular set of fortifications were set aside to become an emergency hospital.

  • Highly informative, covers all aspects of the occupation, not just the history of the tunnels themselves. Does a great job of telling the human side of the story with some excellent exhibits. Friendly staff topped things off nicely. Well worth a visit.
  • If you are interested in history this is well worth a visit. Really brings to life what it was like during the occupation. Lots of moral dilemmas to think about faced with hunger. Also the lady in the tea room was so friendly and the food was good, nicely served on mixed china crockery. Also if you visit the tunnels first you get a 10% discount in the tea rooms.
