4.6
Opened to the public in 1946 and subsequently restored, Jersey War Tunnels - German Underground Hospital encompasses an underground network of tunnels, fortifications, and military installations built by the Nazis in the 1940s. Intended to serve as part of the Nazi defense of the island, part of this particular set of fortifications were set aside to become an emergency hospital. In 2001, a permanent exhibit was unveiled and serves to illustrate the daily life of Jersey’s citizens before, during, and after the occupation.

  • A thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating walk back in time through Jersey's harsh treatment by the Nazis and neglect from the mother country!  more »
  • An exciting tour on the life of Jersey under Occupation. An excellent set design within these tunnels, interactivity, the frescoes and the impressive stagings. A lighthouse tour to do, absolutely, if you spend a few days in Jersey. Wrap up warm, it's cold in the tunnel, and the tour takes about two hours.

  • They have done an amazing job here, and it's well worth taking the time to visit. It's a cross between a museum and a history lesson, all in wartime tunnels. Absolutely fascinating. Make time for it. You won't be disappointed.
  • Highly recommended. Focus is mainly on telling the story of the German occupation during WW2 with well presented and informative displays. Allow 2 hours to take it all in.
  • Really interesting & well laid out, so much information & good displays & films. Facilities are excellent, lovely shop + tea room. We paid extra for the audio tour which I personally think was a waste of money.
  • The Jersey War Tunnels was far more enjoyable than I had expected. The facilities are excellent, and the level of detail in explaining the Islands history during World War Two is superb. The whole experience leaves you feeling for the Islanders and the tough decisions that had to be made, leave or stay, before occupation. Expect to take about two hours to go through the tunnels, and make sure you dress in warm clothes, the temperature is around ten degrees in the deeper sections of the tunnels!
  • Too much to read. A guide would be good as they have in Gibraltar. Prefer one in Guernsey .
