Our focus for our visit to Normandy was to visit as many of the German defensive positions as possible and we are glad we picked this to be one of them. Not well known or mainstream but the bunkers were impressive.

Incredible mass of concrete, you can see semi-collapsed battery equipped with preserved gun. Also there is a very nice museum describing the history of the battery. Text guide is available in English language. Visited in 9/2012

Spent a good hour here exploring the many passageways and rooms. The hand held guide was very imformative and the admission price very reasonable. However many of the tunnels are quite dark so if you don't like confined spaces explore outside the battery. There are...More

Worth the stop-off but maybe not visit if it is all you want to see. I was too late for film so just looked around. Good info on signs.

This attraction is on the D 514 coast road and really is a must see. There is ample free parking for visitors, a Tourist Information office and alongside a small bar for snacks and drinks. The battery positions are very accessible, still containing the guns...More
