  • Plant would be historically high interest - unfortunately, there are no descriptions of the equipment except for a map at the beginning of the tour. You should take a card at the entrance / buy to reasonably know. Museum-like at all not electrophoresis Touristenabzocke prepared.

  • This is the site where the assassination attempt on Hitler was made by Von Steuffenberg as per the film Valkyrie. Getting a guide book is a must as without one, it's just a pile of damaged buildings. ...  read more »
  • As I wrote in the topic. In June 2015, we had a great guide and its price was not high because we were in a group of 8 adults and 4 children. Our "old man" was great. Not only that, he talked about everything with such a passion as if it all happened there was just this even babies as it were (at least not the way as told). Showed us around every corner. The construction of bunkers up to amaze, especially those thick concrete ceilings. While there I was just wondering how rolled to history if the assassination attempt on Hitler went. It is worth to get there.

  • Great historical place with good infrastructure and hotel. Staying in hotel will let you explore complex in off hours, without other visitors.
  • Very interesting place for a history lover. Best to go with guide.
  • This place really gets you thinking. I was totally quiet while walking through this ruins. However, there seemed to be people arround which looked at this location "from the other direction".
  • Creepy place but well worth a visit. Places like this remind us of the cruelty of the war.
  • Fascinating place of historical interest and a poignant reminder of World War II. It has pretty much been left untouched following the attempt to destroy the place at the end of the war. It's amazing to see how well engineered the buildings were, especially given the short time in which they were built. We had an English-speaking guide (they are available despite some reviews claiming otherwise) for a nominal fee - I didn't pay it so I can't say whether it was worth it or not but having the guide was useful to explain the uses and features of each of the buildings. Highly recommended, particularly for those interested in history and World War II.
