  • I was there few days ago and it was closed. I was disappointed. 2 Stars because we had a nice picnic on the top of a bunker :)

  • Great visit. euro 5 audio guide included a wealth of information and details is worth the price of admission! Recommended for 1 hour or so of time it takes to traverse the underground tunnels and bunkers outside.
