  • Blah, as many sites of Normandy, this bunker tells her microhistory, be that interested locals passionate of Ouistreham, or descendants of the soldiers who fought here. Collection of objects from war crammed to illustrate the life of the Bunker. Will interest kids.

  • Very didactic Museum on the living conditions in the bunkers and offers many reconstructions (rooms, hospital, command post,...), well explained and visually very interesting. Visit of +/-1 h 30.

  • Very impressive bunker. When we visited it, there where not many tourists, but I can imagine its gets to crowded in the high season. Nevertheless, impressive what the germans where able to develop in so short notice. Everything looked very well reconstructed and was guided by a lot off original photo material on the walls. Well worth a visit, but if you want to visit other impressive bunkers, please also visit the bunker complex in Merville, maybe even more impressive with audio reconstructed sound of troups in the bunker while shooting a canon (don't forget to take earplugs with you!)
  • Very expensive to visit the bunker 7,50€, no air inside, i was there like 10 minutes and i had to rush out! I understand the historycal value but there are so many places that worth a visit instead of this. The village is very nice however
  • Best example of a WW2 German defence command centre in Normandy. Everything is intact, just like the day the German troops surrendered. The surrender story is faithfully described (52 Germans and only 3 British solders) with no casualties as the Germans just gave up The great bunker was both a gun placement guarding the D-Day beaches and a forward command post relaying information to Caen. Well worth an hour to visit as part of a D-Day beaches tour
  • Expensive, nothing new inside and they keep letting people in, too crowded, too few oxygen... Bad experience!
  • It was very interesting like most of st Malo is. Nice place to visit
