We drove from CLermont Ferrand to visit this place, arrived 14:55 to find the place closed. I was not impressed as when we looked it up on the internet it said it opened at 14:30.

We absolutely loved our visit to Gros Ouvrage Maginot du Hackenberg. It was one of the highlights of our trip. The working train and cannon turrets were incredible and the museum pieces inside were incredible as well. I would highly recommend it.

If you're in the area this is definitely a must-see! The fortress of hackenberg is humongous and truly awe inspiring. The staff and guides were informative and friendly and is very reasonably priced! Definitely bring warm clothes!

The tour, during which you can see both the interior and exterior of this impressive fortress of the Maginot line, took about 2.5-3 hours, partly by foot, partly by (authentic) train. The fortress is remarkably intact, including the operation system of the large gunstig, and...More
