    Worth the stop-off but maybe not visit if it is all you want to see. I was too late for film so just looked around. Good info on signs.  more »

    For those who are interested in military history, it is a must-visit place. Only observe the impact on one of the fortified structures already appalled.

    On the way to Crisbecq I stumbled upon this plant. As the other plants you visited these underground Abdulazeez by tunnels and corridors. With the German audio guide, you get much explained. I was very surprised, because a German declaration is available in very few cases.

    Well designed visit. Worth it to know how the underground tunnels were build as well as each part of the bunker structure. A lot of history can be learned here! Definitely worth it. Ask for the audio guide!

    Tunnel experience is awesome. Several bunkers in good condition with some unique camouflage on the outsides.

    The battery has a really good audioguide ( i think in the end it said it was made in co-operation with the history section of the university of Caen ) that explains a lot about D-Day and the battery of course, but also about the life of the soldiers before and their relation to the villigers. Really liked this one and would recomend it over visiting the Battery of Crisbeque

    The Germans were well prepared - worth a visit to see how.
