  • Very curious place. Full of history. Preserved and a big bonus....can see a C-47 ...
  • Great place with interesting things to see and a remarkable story about the paratroopers who captured this place. The final installation was not really as exciting as it was made out to be. Little bit of a disappointment. I think we payed 6-7 EUR pr person so it was rather cheap for so much different stuff to see. The paratrooper plane was awesome. Some of the stories at the site were not translated and some of those that were, were translated poorly.
  • Great place to visit which explains the events in a clear and concise manner.
  • Very nice and interesting historic place. You can enter the interior of exposed plane and try what it was like to be in bunker while its attack. I can definitely recommend this place to visit.
  • Disappointed information boards on path around site were only in French when British Soldiers were the ones to make sacrifice here, I felt it slightly disrespectful.
