Jersey War Tunnels - German Underground Hospital, St. Lawrence

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.

  • Like others I first visited when I was a child and it has changed immensely, much more organised and a lot more informative . I have read that some peoples children get bored quickly, but if your child is of an age to be interested in REAL history, then this is one place they should go, as they will be keen to learn and find out things here. That great thing about Jersey is that it has kept a lot of it's history from WW2, rather than destroying it which it why these places are so special to preserve.
  • Knowing that millions of people around the world would be watching in person and on television and expecting great things from him — at least one more gold medal for America, if not another world record — during this, his fourth and surely his last appearance in the World Olympics, and realizing that his legs could no longer carry him down the runway with the same blazing speed and confidence in making a huge, eye-popping leap that they were capable of a few years ago when he set world records in the 100-meter dash and in the 400-meter relay and won a silver medal in the long jump, the renowned sprinter and track-and-field personality Carl Lewis, who had known pressure from fans and media before but never, even as a professional runner, this kind of pressure, made only a few appearances in races during the few months before the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, partly because he was afraid of raising expectations even higher and he did not want to be distracted by interviews and adoring fans who would follow him into stores and restaurants demanding autographs and photo-opportunities, but mostly because he wanted to conserve his energies and concentrate, like a martial arts expert, on the job at hand: winning his favorite competition, the long jump, and bringing home another Gold Medal for the United States, the most fitting conclusion to his brilliant career in track and field.
  • Interesting about history but a dark and sad place too. Best to visit on a warm sunny day as the tunnels are cool. Cafe and shop good.
  • Fantastic museum and a must see for any visitor to the island. An excellent exploration into occupied Jersey providing context to the concrete fortifications, bunkers and towers that dot the shoreline around Jersey. Great cafe upstairs to recharge the batteries after an explore. Plan to spend a few hours inside if you want to capture everything. I took my parents on a visit when they flew over for a week and we all enjoyed.
  • Excellent site and extremely informative. Be prepared though, it's a lot of walking! In the off season some days are two for one.
