  • This is a must stop if you enjoy learning WWII history. We were on a tour lead by an expat. I recommend finding an English speaking tour guide so you can get the whole picture of taking the ridge. It is crazy to see where Dawson lowers all the casualties.
  • Blast from the past. Relaxing view :)
  • Visited this place with my best friend and we saw many great views and history. Been wanting to see this place for a long time. It would be difficult to find if your not familiar with the area but with google maps and the correct name of the place you can find anyplace and go everywhere. One of the pictures has a tree trunk that looks like a hand.
  • A terrific spot to study some local history while, getting a good bit of exercise, hiking the length of the trails leading up and down the hillside. Bring along a camera, to capture some of the amazing scenery. Children on bikes or, strollers can easily navigate the paved walkways.
  • Lovely place with great views. I visited the place just a few weeks after I saw the movie. It was a constant reminder for the need for peace and the futility of war.
