  • The Germans were well prepared - worth a visit to see how.
  • 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 :)
  • Very well maintained and hugely informative
  • There is no place like it in the area that gives such a great experience of understanding how it would have been.
  • Couldn't see everything due to holidays, but parts which I did see were impressive.
