  • Nice place of memories of WW1 The hiking within the trench is about 2hours
  • Great experience for those interested in the Great War. Walking the WWI battlefield does require some hiking, and a couple of hours. I thought the hike was well worth the time taken. Between the memorial, the trenches and bunkers, the smaller memorials, and the views I found it all very rewarding.
  • German trenches have survived better than the French ones. So close together and yet through politicians folly so far apart. Senselessness up in the peace of the mountains.
  • Very impressive and eary especially in the foggy weather we had.
  • Ok
