  • Good audio guide. Very informative.
  • 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!
  • 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
  • Tunnel experience is awesome. Several bunkers in good condition with some unique camouflage on the outsides.
  • Good conservation. You need to pay to visit into
