  • I have several times visited this museum. Get an impression of what happened here historically in the second world war. Everything is shown at original site original images, texts and sketches. A visit is worthwhile in any case. If possible, you should however take part in a guided tour. The leaders are very good and bring one in March 1945 very vividly over the decisive days. Interesting are also the representations and reports to the prisoner camp "Golden mile", that in 1945 in Sinzig Remagen nearly 300,000 German prisoners "housed". For anyone who deals with German history, highly recommended.

  • We were impressed with the remains of the railway bridge at Remagen and we were still in the museum. Extremely well documented, lots of pictures and models, many remnants and memorabilia. Some photos I became really moved. We are happy that we have been there, just unforgettable.
