  • Great sense of the German side of life on the wall. Very informative and we'll displayed equipment.
  • Great place to get an impression of how German WW2 bunkers operate and work. Looks taken care of and has numerous English plaques with explanations, pictures and collected war memorabilia from the allies and German troops.
  • Brilliantly preserved. Great view from the top of the coast. Full of information, well translated into English. Shame about lack of free parking as advertised, but 2Euros for 2 hours on the nearby coast road (1-2min walk) - plenty else to see and do nearby. Stone's throw from the ferry terminal.
  • I'd never expected to see a German WWII bunker in such a good state of preservation. The view from the range finder floor is stunning on a good day and, in historical context, chilling. There's a good selection of items and photos to see inside with interpretative panels. Loses a star for having no free parking as advertised on their website (unless you have a motorbike) and no soap in the toilets.
  • A museum without a theme. A collection of disperate pieces of WW2 artifacts rather than a museum of the actual building.
