One of my favourite sites on our trip to Normandy. Not advertised well or known about much so had to convince our little group it was worth a visit. Everyone was so glad I talked them into it. Tunnels were a big hit with kids...More

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

The only original German batteries still available for visitation. Free of charge (parking or entering). Take your time to visit it and walk around the batteries.

Can't understand why this place was so quiet, it is fantastic. We visited many museums whilst in Normandy but this was my favourite. All seven in our group found this really interesting. Included in the small entry charge is a hand held audio tour device....More
