  • We visited in February. Not a lot do say. Be aware the Batterie is only open from April till Oktober.So we just got an idea from outside.  more »
  • For lovers of military history, the real one, this place is a must see. German naval artillery is the backdrop to a pleasant walk. The Council's visit with a guide who will tell you everything in detail. Modicissimi prices, parking and lots and lots of history. Must see for anyone visiting the Normandy beaches.

  • The first part was accessible, the second part was completed. Too bad this is not open during the winter months, when the generally calmer and you can read/view all quiet

  • 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.
  • Very nice place, filled with history! This place is worth a visit! The site is very explicit and well documented! Throughout the tour, you will be transported into the daily lives of soldiers living in this place, by an audio system! The rate is more than adequate! I recommend...
